Bordeaux striker Marouane Chamakh will stay in France until the end of the season.

Everton, Arsenal and West Ham United are all keen on the Morocco international, who is off contract in June.

Chamakh has told the growing list of clubs hoping to secure his services he won't move until the end of the season when he will be a free agent.

"I am certain to finish the season with Bordeaux. I will be free at the end of the season but I don't want to see my name bandied around in January."
