Remy: Keen to move on
Nice general manager Patrick Governatori insists the club will not be lowering their valuation of Loic Remy.
The striker remains the subject of intense transfer speculation, with a switch to the Premier League widely touted.
West Ham, Tottenham and Stoke are all believed to have expressed an interest in the France international this summer.
However, no deal has been struck, with Nice's asking price proving to be stumbling block.
It is claimed that the Ligue 1 outfit are looking to get somewhere in the region of £14million for their prized asset, and are reluctant to relax that stance.
Remy has asked for the club to lower their demands so that he can fulfil a dream of playing in England, but so far his pleas have fallen on deaf ears.
"I am not moved in any way by his words," Governatori told L'Equipe.
"We have set a fee and it is either that sum or he stays here and plays out the two years on his contract."
Remy is reluctant to stay put and is hoping a deal can still be put in place.
He recently met with Spurs officials to discuss a potential move, but admits he is uncertain as to whether their interest will come to anything.
"I talked with them after the match," he said following Saturday's 0-0 draw with Valenciennes.
"However, I don't know if anything will happen."
