Auxerre midfielder Delvin Ndinga has claimed that he rejected advances from Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur to stay in Ligue 1.
Ndinga, 23, is a Congo international and while there was reported interest from Newcastle and Spurs, his club Auxerre were also apparently keen on a deal.
However, the Ndinga said: “I preferred to stay in Ligue 1 for this season.
“I had contact with many foreign clubs like Tottenham, Newcastle and Sevilla and they requested information about me.
“Some made offers but we decided to stop the subject for a year. First I want to prove my worth in the French league.”
Ndinga has played in all four of Auxurre’s league matches so far this season.
