Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas takes to social media to criticise the performances of a number of the club's players, which seemingly includes Memphis Depay.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has suggested that he will not allow any players to leave the club in the summer if they continue to underperform in Ligue 1.

Two defeats in three matches have resulted in the club losing ground on second-placed Lille, and the form comes at a time when a number of players have been linked with a move away from the French outfit.

Quotes attributed to Memphis Depay have indicated that the Dutchman is one of Lyon's star men who wish to move to a bigger club and Chelsea have been linked with an approach, but Aulas has moved to dismiss the possibility of several sales being made in the next transfer window.

After Sunday's defeat to Monaco, Aulas said on Twitter: "This match shows us all the way to go to achieve all our goals. Some players are far below their potential.

"Those who think they can make big transfers at the end of the year are wrong, they must talk less and give much more."

The likes of Tanguy Ndombele, Houssem Aouar and Nabil Fekir have also been linked with a move away from Lyon.
