Bordeaux battler: Marouane Chamakh (right) fights for the ball

Bordeaux boss Laurent Blanc has issued a hands-off warning to Barclays Premier League clubs over Marouane Chamakh.  

Tottenham

have been among the clubs linked with the 25-year-old Morocco international, a hard-working support striker for his French club.   Former Manchester United centre-back Blanc told French newspaper Sud-Ouest: "Marouane will still be under contract with Les Girondins next season. Him moving is totally out of question. He is an extremely productive player."  

Chamakh is thought to be keen on a move to England but could also sign a contract extension with his current club. He said: "We will certainly be speaking with the club about a contract extension but it's still too early to speak about it.  

"If one day I was to move on, for sure it will be for England. But this doesn't mean that I'm desperate to leave. It will depend on the opportunities that will arise."  

Spurs appeared to be interested in Fernando Cavenaghi, Chamakh's Bordeaux team-mate, during the January transfer window but a move did not materialise.  

Harry Redknapp eventually bought Jermain Defoe and Robbie Keane back to White Hart Lane to bolster his attack and the Spurs boss has been tipped to make more changes in the summer.
