Southampton and West Ham United target Nemanja Radonjic has completely ruled out a possible January move to either of the two clubs, saying that he is 'sure' that he will stay at Marseille.


The Serbian has spent most of the season out with a thigh injury, but even when he has been fit, he has struggled to fit into Andre Villas-Boas's starting side consistently.


Whilst West Ham and Southampton are reportedly showing interest in the winger, the one-time Roma youngster still wants to fight for his place at Marseille according to a report from Tuttomercatoweb.com.


Speaking on the matter, Radonjic said "I heart of this interest on the internet but I have no intention of leaving Olympique Marseille".


Radonjic moved to Marseille from Red Star Belgrade for £12 million back in August 2018.


He added that he has "not had contact with other clubs and I am sure I will stay here. I want to stay at least until the summer and I am happy that the coach has given me more space in the last few matches."


As he himself stated, Radonjic's game-time for Marseille has increased significantly over the past few weeks or so, with the Serbian featuring in three of the club's last four games, even scoring in a 3-1 win against Montpellier.


He started successive Ligue 1 games for the first time this season against Montpellier and Dijon, and he hopes that he will start to get a better run out with the side.


Radonjic has also been linked with a move to Sassuolo, yet he dismissed these rumours as well.


Last season, Radonjic played 25 games in all competitions, scoring six goals and providing one assist.
