Betis bid for Toulouse midfielder

Real Betis have offered Toulouse six million euros for their Cameroonian midfielder Achille Emana, the Spaniards have announced. The 26-year-old has reportedly also drawn interest from English Premier League teams Newcastle United and West Ham United.

Emana has a contract with the French side until 2011, but has said he would welcome a move to Spain.

The midfielder rose through the youth academy ranks at Valencia, before moving to Toulouse as a teenager in 2000.
