Anton Ferdinand has claimed that he rejected a lucrative offer from Ukrainian side Dnipro before completing a move to ambitious QPR.
The former Sunderland defender moved to the newly promoted outfit on transfer deadline day, and the 26-year-old revealed that a move to Eastern Europe instead of Loftus Road was never on his agenda as his football takes precedence over financial muscle.
Ferdinand continued by adding that if players play at a high standard, then they will reap the rewards in due course.
"The offer from Ukraine came in first and it didn't excite me - I'm not someone who goes somewhere because the money was right," Ferdinand told The Times.
"I'm all about my football and if you do well in football, the money comes to you."
Ferdinand made his Hoops debut against Newcastle United last Monday night and produced an assured performance, in which he boasted a clean sheet.
