West Ham? Marseille defender Caleta-Car: I had good Prem offer this summer

West Ham are being linked with Olympique Marseille defender Duje Caleta-Car.

Ahead of tonight's Champions League clash with Manchester City, the Croatian admits he received an offer to move to England this summer.

He said, "Yes this summer I received a good offer from a Premier League club, which was interesting for me and for the club, but I decided to stay here because it was my dream to play in the Champions League.

"I'm glad I stayed. Manchester City are one of the best teams in the world and it will be a test, not only for me but also for the whole team. I can't wait to play this match."

Local pundit Nabil Djellit has since declared the Premier League club in question was West Ham.
