Kamara: I will not be Chamakh makeweight

Fulham striker Diomansy Kamara has denied reports linking him with a switch to French champions Bordeaux.

The 28-year-old has netted nine times in 40 league appearances for the Cottagers, after arriving from West Bromwich Albion in 2007.

However, the French-born Senegal international has been tipped to leave Roy Hodgson's side this summer, with the front-man reportedly set to be included in a part-exchange deal for much sought-after Moroccan forward Marouane Chamakh.

Fulham and West Ham are believed to have entered the race for Chamakh, with Arsenal withdrawing their interest after seeing a £5 million offer snubbed by the Ligue 1 outfit.

But former Portsmouth goal-getter Kamara has since stated that he wants to stay in West London for the coming campaign.

"I have been linked recently with a move to Bordeaux, however I like it here at Fulham," he told L'Equipe.

"The interest from Bordeaux was from another good side, but I did not like the idea.

"I want to be in the team, the manager wants me 100 percent, nothing else. I owe a big season to Fulham.

"My representatives have been on the phone with [Bordeaux president Jean-Louis] Triaud. People have also spoken about a possible exchange with Marouane Chamakh.

"But Laurent Blanc hasn't called me. And when a coach doesn't phone you, that signifies that a club doesn't really want you."
