Adel Taarabt is disappointed to have seen a proposed move to Paris St Germain break down.
The Queens Park Rangers playmaker appeared destined to complete a switch to the French capital once PSG made a formal approach.
Discussions were held between the two clubs and Taarabt's representative.
There was, however, to be a twist in the tale, with QPR announcing on Saturday that no agreement had been reached.
They claimed Taarabt would be staying at Loftus Road for the 2010/11 campaign and was fully committed to the Premier League new boys.
The 22-year-old sees the matter slightly differently, though, and has aired his frustration at how a lengthy transfer saga has played out.
"I want to go to Paris, but if it is not sorted out this weekend then it won't happen," Taarabt told L'Equipe.
"The QPR board are fed up with the situation. This has gone on for two months.
"If I have to stay in London, I will be able to look forward to the Premier League."
Asked how he feels about having seen a move collapse, Taarabt added: "Of course it is disappointing because I wanted to come. The project interests me a lot.
"In England I will earn more money, but Paris is the capital of France. If I exploded onto the scene there, it could be extraordinary.
"It felt like fate would take me to PSG. Paris was a great opportunity."
