Sunderland and Arsenal target Marouane Chamakh will stay at Bordeaux for another season unless there is swift resolution to his situation.

With Bordeaux due to travel to Montreal on 22nd July for a pre-season tour, coach Laurent Blanc does not believe Chamakh will leave les Girondins if he joins his team-mates and boards the flight to Canada.

"It must happen quickly," said Blanc on a possible deal for Chamakh.

"If Marouane comes with us to Montreal there will be a good chance he'll spend the season with Bordeaux."
