Former QPR defender Benoit Assou-Ekotto says he has been offered a number of roles in adult films, but claims he won't be getting involved as it is "far too taboo".

The defender's ambitions went viral after Harry Redknapp said that the 33-year-old was torn between a move to Birmingham City, or a move to be a porn star.

Speaking on the Spurs Show Podcast, Redknapp said: "The only trouble is that he’s admitted he wants to be a porn star.

"Maybe I can get another year out of him before he decides to do that. What a good player. He could well end up in the Birmingham colours next year, Benoit."

But Assou-Ekotto denied the idea, saying: "A lady in England alerted me on Twitter at the time, it rather surprised me.

"From what I understood, it was in a show, Redknapp was asked about the players he would like to recruit. He talked about me, joked, and then he moved on.

"It made me laugh, but my mother discovered it this morning, Mother’s Day. She told me she would have preferred another gift.

"It was just a joke, it’s not bad. What’s absurd is that we can take it seriously. As if I wanted to become a porn actor! It’s far too taboo.

"I think I'll stay in football."
