Lisandro Lopez opens Lyon talks

Lisandro Lopez says that he would like to stay at Lyon beyond his current deal, which runs out in 2014.

Lisandro Lopez has opened contract talks with Lyon in the hope of extending his current deal at the Stade de Gerland by a further year.

The Argentine striker has stated that he would like to stay at the club beyond 2014.

However, negotiations are believed to hinge on whether Les Gones qualify for the Champions League.

Remi Garde may be forced to sell the 29-year-old in order to save on his £250,000-a-week wages.

"My intention is to stay," Lopez told L'Equipe. "We're discussions to extend my contract for another season at least. We're on the same page, but nothing has been signed yet."

Lopez signed for Lyon from Portuguese side FC Porto in 2009.
