Dunfermline Athletic manager Stephen Kenny insists Sol Bamba remains part of his plans, despite the Frenchman wanting to leave the relegated club.

Bamba impressed last season after his arrival from Paris St Germain, despite the Pars losing their top-flight place.

But Kenny said: "Sol is under contract to the club and that is the way it is.

"He had visions of moving to bigger things. But, to be honest, we have not had any offers and he has a number of agents representing him."

The 22-year-old has publicly stated that he believes he has a chance of representing his country - but only if he finds a new club.

You need people who are willing to pull in the one direction to win games

"I am not sure what kind of advice he is getting, but from my point of view I need people committed," Kenny told his club website.

"If you are indifferent with your commitment going forward, that affects the whole collective effort.


"You need people who are willing to pull in the one direction to win games."

However, Kenny praised Bamba for his performance in Thursday's 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest in a pre-season friendly at East End Park.

"He is a good player, Sol," said the manager.

"He had it in his mind he would be leaving by now.

"Nothing has happened. You never know with these things."
