Emana commits to Betis

25 September 2009 10:08
Achille Emana has committed his future to Real Betis following fresh transfer speculation. The Cameroon international was linked with a move away from Spain over the summer following Betis' relegation out of the Primera Liga. A switch to England was widely touted, with a number of clubs reported to be tracking his availability. No move materialised but speculation has once again suggested that Premier League sides could move for Emana in January, with Bolton and Blackburn said to be weighing up New Year bids. The combative midfielder met with Betis president Jose Leon this week in an effort to clarify his situation and insists he is now prepared to remain in Sevilla. "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.
