■ FOOTBALL: Former Chelsea striker Nicolas Anelka has initiated talks to terminate his contract with the Chinese side Shanghai Shenhua. Anelka joined from Chelsea in January but has only scored three times during his short spell as Shanghai struggled to finish ninth in the Super League. Former Blues teammate Didier Drogba joined Anelka in China in the summer but his future in Shanghai also remains uncertain.
