How to correctly translate this:

My dad bought me a new phone. I didn´t need to have the old one repaired.


Babam bana yeni bir telefon aldı.

a.) Eskisini tamir ettirmeye ihtiyacım yoktu.

b.) Eskiyi tamir ettirmeye ihtiyacım yoktu.

c.) Eski olanı tamir ettirmeye ihtiyacım yoktu.


Which option is most correct for the ending of the sentence?

In my opinon, the closest one is "a". 

but following sentence is more closer or sounds native. 

d) Eskisini tamir ettirmeye gerek duymadım.


So my vote is for "d"
