Marseille striker Loic Remy believes only his club's financial problems will lead to his departure this summer, despite persistent interest from Tottenham Hotspur.

The Premier League side reportedly attempted to bring the French international to the club during the January transfer window, and are expected to try again this coming summer.

Remy has been the shining light for a Marseille side who have struggled this season, despite reaching the Champions League last-eight, but it is problems off the pitch that could dictate where Remy's future lies.

Remy appears likely to stay put at Marseille.

"I already said I am not ready to leave for the moment," he told La Provence.

"There are offers, in England especially, but I do not feel I have had a complete season for Marseille and have a sense of unfulfilled duty.

"I would like to stay for one more year. Now, there are the Euros, and we'll see what happens, as that may determine things," he added.

With the future of Emmanuel Adebayor and Jermain Defoe far from certain at White Hart Lane, Spurs could be forced to look for a new striker this summer.

Harry Redknapp has already stated Tottenham need to be bold in the transfer market after the season ends, and it would be a strong message to the club's rivals should they recruit one of the French football's emerging stars.

Holding on to Adebayor following his season long loan from Manchester City could be the biggest task Redknapp faces this summer, with the Togolese striker's wage demands potentially scuppering any hopes of a deal.

Meanwhile, Defoe's restricted appearances could lead him to move on this summer, leaving Tottenham, who are in pole position to qualify for the Champions League, with a striker crisis going into the summer.

Remy has previously turned down a move to the Premier League having rejected Stoke City in 2010, prior to joining Marseille from Nice.

He's since scored 27 goals in two seasons at the Stade Velodrome under the management of former France captain Didier Deschamps, who has taken the club to 10<sup>th in Ligue 1 during the current campaign.
