Chamakh made to wait for move
The 25-year-old recently revealed that he had agreed terms with four Premier League clubs, Sunderland, Blackburn, Fulham and Tottenham Hotspur, with Arsenal also believed to be pondering a move for the forward.
And although Bordeaux president Jean Louis Triaud previously ridiculed the idea of their prize asset joining the North East outfit, the Wearsiders were thought to be closing in on the capture of the Moroccan front-man, who has netted 15 goals for his country.
Black Cats' boss, Steve Bruce, confirmed last week that chairman Niall Quinn was hoping to step up negotiations over the weekend, while Chamakh and his Bordeaux team-mates were away in Canada competing in the Trophee des Champions – the French equivalent of the Community Shield – against Guingamp in Montreal.
However, after Chamakh took part in the 2-0 win against the French second division outfit, he admitted that he was still unsure if he had taken part in his final game for les Girondins.
"I don't know if it was my final game, we will see," he told Direct8.
"I have to wait. Once I am back in Bordeaux I will study all proposals.
"I don't know where my future lies."
