BORDEAUX striker Marouane Chamakh believes a move to the Premier League may no longer be on the cards.

The Moroccan forward has been linked With Sunderland, West-Ham and Arsenal, however a deal has yet to be agreed.

Bordeaux straight away discarded the idea of a transfer to Sunderland, claiming they were not happy to do business with the north-east club.

With no agreement made with any of the clubs and the transfer window drawing to a close, it seems likely the player will have to settle for another season in Ligue 1.
