Real Betis midfielder Achille Emana has dismissed interest from Blackburn Rovers and Bolton.

"The rumours are over," he said. "I have spoken with the club and we have decided to continue with our relationship.

"I am determined to help Real Betis return to the Primera Liga.

"Everyone is pulling in the same direction and I am very happy with this decision."

Emana admits he was contacted by interested parties over the summer, but claims none of the offers of the table were tempting enough to lure him away from Betis.

"I did receive a number of offers from foreign clubs, but they were not interesting enough for me to make a change," he said.
