Brazil nut: Flamengo's Adriano wasn't tempted to leave his homeland

Brazil striker Adriano has snubbed a move to West Ham United by accepting an improved deal to stay at Flamengo for the next six months.

The 27-year-old has been handed a 40 per cent pay rise after the Brazilian champions landed a new sponsorship deal, but the deal is still less than half of what was on offer if he had returned to Europe.

AC Milan, Roma and the Hammers all approached the former Inter Milan player, but he was reluctant to leave before next summer's World Cup.
