Olympique Marseille boss Didier Deschamps has dismissed rumours that Japan international Keisuke Honda was set to join the club.

The CSKA Moscow forward was linked with the French Ligue 1 outfit last week but Deschamps was not aware his club had any interest in the 24-year old.

“Who? Oh, Honda! I thought it was a motorcycle you were speaking about! And then? I must comment on that? The most important names are the ones I have in my head,” Deschamps joked with the press.

Honda has also been linked with English Premier League Arsenal following his impressive performances at the World Cup.
