French striker Bafetimbi Gomis confirms that he will leave Lyon at the end of this season.

Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis has confirmed that he will leave the club at the end of the season.

The French striker had been heavily linked with Newcastle United in the summer but a move broke down.

Gomis had been forced to train away from the first team during the speculation but maintains that his departure will be amicable.

"I will stay until the end of the season," he told RMC.

"It was complicated but there is not problem. I have the confidence of managers and coaches. Everything that happened is ancient history. I will give everything for Lyon.

"You cannot erase everything that happened, but we have a common goal."

Gomiz scored as Lyon lost 2-1 to Monaco on Sunday.
