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."

reat article. Hits the nail on the head. Encapsulates why I don't read tabloid newspapers anymore. The only thing worse is the 'told you so first' headline when they get lucky.

amous. If that can be achieved whilst sitting in your pants and without any degree of hard work, all the better. I have no desire to be famous, but the rest of that line suits me just fine. Great article by the way, well worth the wait.

here seems to be little focus on the performance of Besiktas. They played very well and stopped Arsenal from playing. Credit has to go to their manager. As much as Arsenal didn't play too well, we kept a clean sheet, but the home side made it very difficult.
