Newcastle target Grenier staying at Lyon

Lyon midfielder Clement Grenier has confirmed he intends to stay with the French club despite interest from Newcastle Utd.

Grenier's agent said on Thursday that his client would remain with Lyon, citing the France international's commitment to the club and an apparent belief he was being undervalued.

I think I will be there. In football everything moves very quickly, but I don't intend to leave. It's not a priority, even if the offers from big clubs make you think.

I'm not someone who leaves like that. Lyon aren't in the right place but we're getting there. I want to stay here to think about my personal goals. The World Cup is one of my objectives.

– Clement Grenier

Gourcuff still wants to leave Lyon

Yoann Gourcuff has reiterated his decision to reject a new contract with Lyon, claiming he does not feel the Ligue 1 club has faith in him.

I will let my lawyer handle it.

An extension must be a sign of confidence from both parties, with everyone being satisfied.

That fact that I've been injured regularly or often on the bench... I don't think it's relevant.

I have not felt huge confidence from the club at times.
