Benjamin Andre has explained his reason behinds snubbing a move to Liverpool this summer.
The 27-year-old enjoyed a fine season with Rennes last season, leading him to being linked with a £15million move to Anfield as his contract entered his final year.
However, despite ‘other options’ on the table, Andre opted to renew his contract with the Ligue 1 side instead.
“There is a project here that everyone knows,” he told Le Telegramme.
“I was at one point in my career where I had to make decisions, I had one year left.
“There were other options but [the fact] I am no longer the youngster made me want to continue with the Rennes.
“[I want] to go as high as possible [with Rennes this season].”
