No Stephane M'bia for Arsenal

The President of Marseille Jean-claude Dassier has reiterated his desire to keep his coveted midfielder Stephane M'bia at the French outfit.

Contrary to reports in the media, which claimed authoritatively that Arsenal have put plans in motion to finally bring the £16m rated Cameroon international to the Emirates after he allegedly indicated his willingness to join Arsenal instead of Everton. But, Marseille have revealed that they won't sell the player they bought last summer from Rennes for £10.5m to any club.

Marseille won't hear any of the transfer speculation as this statement from the President of the club suggests:
"M'bia is not for sale," Dassier declared. "Even for £18m? Money is not the object, Stephane M'bia is not for sale."
