Benjamin Stambouli: “I don’t want to return to France”

Tottenham’s defensive midfielder Benjamin Stambouli has closed the door on a possible return to France and thus a move to Marseille this evening on RMC.

He had the following to say:

“I am aware of what is being said, and I think, no, I won’t be coming back to France. I am thinking about getting a bit more game time in England. I chose England for lots of reasons, and so I will stay. It is there that I want to succeed. Maybe one day I will return to France. But today, my head is here. I have a month of holidays to recharge. I will see what I do. But, if there is something, it will be in England. My priority is to succeed at a Premier League club.”

Marseille had made an offer for the player, according to L’Équipe.
