It`s come out today that interested parties have a week to seal any prospective deal for former Liverpool striker Djibril Cisse. With ourselves and the Hammers having been long linked to the striker Marseille Chairman Pape Diouf said:

“The closer we get to the start of the season the less chance Djibril has of leaving. He has been frank with us, we know he wants to go back to England even though there has been no concrete offer.

We consider Djibril as someone who’ll still be in Marseille for our season. If he stays it’ll be very good for us. We wouldn’t be able to replace him at such short notice.’
