AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie has rejected the advances of Tottenham as he wants to honour his current contract.
Tottenham and Milan have been in talks for a few days now about Kessie and an agreement was reportedly reached, but the player put a stop to things, not wanting to make the move to England, according to Calciomercato.com.
The 25-year-old is set to become a free agent in just over five months' time with his contract up at the end of June, but he wants to stay and be a part of the Serie A title race as Rossoneri look to be crowned champions for the first time since 2010/11.
Milan have reportedly offered the Ivory Coast international a salary of £5.4million a year but Kessie has so far resisted all offers of an extension.
He is however free to sign a pre-contract agreement with any European club.
Kessie initially joined Milan on loan from Atalanta in 2017 and made the deal permanent in 2019.—Daily Mail
