ZOKORA MOVES TO SEVILLA

Tottenham’s Didier Zokora has left the club and joined Sevilla for an undisclosed fee.

The Ivory Coast international made 134 appearances for the London side after moving from St Etienne for £8.2 million following the 2006 World Cup.

It looked as if the move had stalled after Sevilla baulked at Spurs’ valuation but an agreement was eventually reached with Zokora signing a four year deal.

In other transfer news, Celtic have confirmed the signing of striker Marc-Antoine Fortune from Nancy on a three-year contract.

The 28-year-old moves to Glasgow in a deal worth approximately £3.8million.


Manchester United have signed French winger Gabriel Obertan from Bordeaux on a four-year contract.

The 20-year-old had also been linked with Arsenal as well as Italian sides Inter Milan and AC Milan.

Obertan spent the second half of last season on loan at Ligue 1 side Lorient, where he made 15 appearances and scored once.

And Robin van Persie has signed a new long-term contract at Arsenal.

The 25 year old Dutch striker, was the Gunners’ leading scorer last season, with 20 goals from 44 appearances, and the deal is reportedly worth £80,000 a week.
