Mame Biram Diouf: Said to be attracting interest from Borussia Dortmund

Former Manchester United forward Diouf is tied to Hannover until the summer of 2014.

He is, however, said to be a target for Borussia Dortmund, with nine goals in 17 appearances this season bringing him to the attention of the Bundesliga's top sides.

Hannover, though, are reluctant to discuss a sale and claim they are planning to offer fresh terms to the Senegalese frontman.

Manager Mirko Slomka told ZDF Media: "Mame Biram Diouf is an exceptional striker.

"We are happy to have him at our club and we will do our best to ensure that he remains with us.

"It is normal that other clubs are interested in a player like this. That does not mean that he automatically has to move clubs.

"My wish is to see a contract extension with Diouf put in place."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
