Transfer rumour does appear to have died down completely since Harry left but one player who won’t be coming to the club is Marvin Martin. The French midfielder who has appeared as a substitute at Euro 2012 was linked with the club as soon as Eden Hazard joined Chelsea but ironically, Martin is Hazard’s new replacement at Lille.
“I am very happy,” Martin said on Lille’s official website. “I wanted to sign for Lille because they are an ambitious club I have been interested in for a long time.
“You can talk about a real choice here, and I hope from all my heart that everything will go well.”
Looking at the player’s credentials didn’t exactly get anyone excited but if reports were true, Spurs were particularly keen on Martin. For now though, this is just one more to cross off the list.
