An new contract for Marouane Chamakh may make it easier for the striker to leave Bordeaux, it has been revealed.

Chamakh was priced out of moves to Arsenal and West Ham United in the summer, though both Premiership clubs are ready to try again in January.

Bordeaux intend to offer the Morocco international a new deal through to 2012, but it will include an affordable buyout clause should Chamakh still be determined to leave.
