Barcelona defender Eric Abidal's new contract talks remain at deadlock.

The France international has less than a year to run on his present deal and has a new deal to 2014 in front of him from Barca.

However, Sport says the terms on offer have not impressed Abidal and he so far has refused to sign.

The Frenchman remains one of the heavyweights of Barca's defence and coach Pep Guardiola is anxious to have his contract situation cleared up.
