Nottingham Forest midfielder Guy Moussi has said he could never have joined Derby County despite reported interest from Forest's arch-rivals.
The 26-year-old Frenchman has signed an extended contract but said he had offers from top-flight clubs and there was also contact with the Rams.
Moussi told BBC Radio Nottingham: "I don't want to be rude but I could not have gone to Derby. It was impossible.
"I had opportunities but I could not go to other Championship clubs."
