Nicolas Anelka has rejected the opportunity to move to Italian club Lazio.

The West Bromwich Albion striker is currently under investigation for making an alleged anti-Semitic gesture known as the 'quenelle' in late December, something he suggests is anti-establishment rather than race related.

Anelka, who is facing a Football Association charge, has been the subject of an offer from Lazio but he politely declined the proposal.
