Le Havre midfielder Kevin Anin claims he still hopes to become a Premier League performer despite snubbing the overtures of Tottenham in the summer.
The Ligue 2 forward had an opportunity to join Spurs on loan after catching the eye of boss Harry Redknapp during a two-day trial.
But the 23-year-old Frenchman opted against the White Hart Lane switch, stating he wants more time to ply his trade in his homeland.
“Tottenham proposed to hire me on loan,” Anin revealed. “I was not attracted. I (have) never left home, so if I sign far away from Le Havre I will need time to adapt. (Sky Sports)
Who does this guy thing he is? The idea that a player in the second tier of French football would decide that a move to the Premier League, even on loan, does not attract him is simply absurd and It wouldn’t surprise me if as a result the striker was overlooked in the long term. We are after all not talking about a teenager who has his career ahead of him and may feel that a move away from his homeland a bit too soon, we are talking about a 23 year old who should have jumped at the chance of a move to a team who is well and truly on their way upwards.
