Florian Thauvin explains turning down Arsenal, Newcastle

Bastia midfielder Florian Thauvin feels he made the right decision to reject offers from England in the summer.

Arsenal and Newcastle United tried for the youngster before he committed himself to Lille for next season.

"These are big clubs, the English league is a good league. This made me happy, it makes me want to go even higher. I thought about it with my advisors, with whom we have always favored a sports project, and for me the project at Lille was the most interesting."
