Lyon striker Jimmy Briand claims that West Bromwich Albion are interested in his signature.

Lyon striker Jimmy Briand has claimed that West Bromwich Albion are interested in securing his services this summer.

The 27-year-old, who is widely expected to leave Lyon this summer, scored just once in a disappointing campaign for the French outfit last season.

"In 15 games last season I scored only one goal. That is not the kind of return I was expecting. There is some disappointment in that," he told reporters at a press conference.

"Lyon are a great club, though, and I want to continue here unless I am deemed surplus to requirements.

"I know West Brom have asked about me, but nothing has been done as yet. Let's wait and see what happens."

A number of European sides have also been credited with an interest.
