(GSM) – Sevilla striker Luis Fabiano has admitted that he received some attractive offers this summer before committing his future to the Spanish club.

A number of top European sides, including Tottenham Hotspur and Olympique Marseille, expressed their interest in luring the Brazil international away from Estadio Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán.

A switch failed to materialize and Fabiano finally quashed the transfer speculation by putting pen to paper on a contract extension.

Despite that a move elsewhere seemed appealing, Fabiano is happy to have committed his future to Sevilla.

“I had some attractive propositions but the price was set too high, and no club could match the fee asked by Sevilla,” Fabiano told L’Equipe.

“At the end of the summer transfer window, I have renewed my contract until June 2013.

“But you know I am fine here. I feel really at home at Sevilla, even if I was tempted by other adventures.”

Fabiano admits he would have chosen to join Marseille, but insists he is more than happy having stayed at Sevilla.

“It was an honour to have been contacted by l’OM and I let both clubs negotiate,” he explained.

“Sevilla had to accept the proposition. I told my officials I was keen to join Marseille.

“But I didn’t want to put any pressure on them. The proposition was attractive to me, but not to Sevilla.

“I said yes because I knew the club’s dimension. It is a great club.”
