Bordeaux president Jean-Louis Triaud has scoffed at talk of a move to Sunderland for striker Marouane Chamakh.

Triaud has denied that the French champions have received a £13 million offer from Sunderland for Marouane Chamakh. The Morocco forward has one year left on his contract and is wanted by Arsenal, should Emmanuel Adebayor leave.

"We never received an offer," Triaud is quoted by The Times. "What the f*** would he do at Sunderland? You have heard him say he will only sign for a big English club. I don't want to insult Sunderland, but I don't even know where they finished last season."
