Newcastle United are currently in talks with Lyon regarding the transfer of Aly Cissokho, according to the player.

Aly Cissokho has claimed that Newcastle United have made contact with Lyon regarding his availability.

The French club recently informed the full-back that he could leave during the ongoing transfer window, but only if they received a suitable offer.

It now appears that the Magpies are closing in on his signature, although the 24-year-old has revealed that other teams are monitoring the situation.

"I am waiting for the green light from Lyon," he told Sky Sports News. "I am a Lyon player and if they agree a fee with a club, I will then talk to that club.

"But nothing is done yet and I have not been to Newcastle for a medical.

"Newcastle and Lyon are talking about me, but there are other teams interested as well."

Cissokho joined Lyon in 2009 from FC Porto.
