Rod Fanni: The defender has strongly linked with a move to Stoke

The 31-year-old powerful right-back has also been linked with a potential move to Everton and Sunderland.

The France international has Champions League experience during his time at Lens and was strongly linked with a move to Newcastle and West Ham before signing a contract extension at Rennes in 2009.

Fanni, who has been at the Stade Velodrome since 2011, is reportedly keen on joining the Potters but Marseille are holding out for more money.

The player told skysports.com: "I have been linked with English clubs for the past three years, but i am still in France.

"Yes I want to play in England but I have a contract here, unless the two clubs agree a fee, it is not in my hands.

"I want to play in the top league and return in the French squad."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
