Ever since Rod Fanni made his move from Rennes to Marseille before Christmas, the gossip columns have been short of a bloke with a silly name to throw-in every couple of days.

Bong is a Cameroon international left-back. The 22-year-old is current plying his trade in France for Valenciennes.
He also has a love of performing sexy dances for Dirk Kuyt.
