Gerets: Cisse is staying

Marseille coach Eric Gerets is confident Djibril Cisse will not leave the club before the transfer window closes at the end of the month.

The France striker has made no secret of his desire to join an English side and there were believed to be a few interested parties earlier this summer, but no bids have come in for Cisse and Gerets reckons the striker will be with OM for the forthcoming season.

"In my head, he is staying, except if there is an offer of X million euros," said the Belgian. "But this offer is not coming. For some time, I have been left with the idea that he is going to stay at the club."
