Sunderland target signs new Rennes deal

The new deal will keep Mangane at Rennes until the summer of 2014.

Mangane has recently been linked with the likes of Sunderland, Marseille and Lyon.

The 28-year-old said: “I am delighted to stay with Rennes until 2014.

“I thought about things for a long time and I think I have made the right decision. Rennes are a fantastic club.

“They are not Lyon, with all the glamour and the big business, but they are the ideal club for me.

“I am 28 now, I have reached my peak and I need to prove again this season that I can maintain those standards.”
