Bordeaux president Jean Louis Triaud has underlined that the door back to the club is always open for Marouane Chamakh.

The Moroccan international striker has not enjoyed a hugely successful time in English football since joining Arsenal on a Bosman transfer in 2010.

He scored seven league goals in his first campaign, but he barely featured last term.

He is constantly linked with a move away from the club and Triaud admits he can move back to the Stade Chaban Delmas whenever he wants - although wages remain an issue.

"Chamakh? He knows when he wants too, he can return to Bordeaux - but he is happy in London," he told Le 10 Sport.

"I see he is not on the score sheet and the media do not talk about him but he says nothing.

"Salaries are different in England, but last December I sent him a message to tell him that if your not happy in London, come home, and that message is still relevant today."
