Marseille president Jean Claude Dassier has ruled out the possibility of Taye Taiwo leaving this summer.

Premier League outfit Spurs had reportedly been keen on the 25-year-old Nigeria international left-back.

Liverpool were believed to have joined the hunt with Argentinian Emiliano Insua set to join Serie A outfit Fiorentina.

Dassier insists Taiwo is staying with the Ligue 1 champions despite any promises the former regime might have offered.

"It's done. He's staying with Marseille. He's a top player and he should be staying here," said Dassier.

"I don't know if the old president promised that he could leave, but that's not me."
