Clement Grenier: 'I'll leave Lyon if they want'

Clement Grenier says that he will leave Lyon if it suits the club financially.

Clement Grenier has said that he will leave Lyon this summer if it benefits the club financially.

Newcastle United and Arsenal have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old, and the Magpies reportedly had a bid of £8m knocked back by Lyon in January after they sold Yohan Cabaye to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Ligue 1 side reportedly value Grenier at closer to £15m, and the midfielder said that he is not sure if he will still be at the French side next season.

He is quoted as saying in the Evening Chronicle: "You never know what can happen. I think first I have to prepare myself.

"I'm at Lyon, but I know that economic reasons may change that. If it happens then it will, in any case, be a decision made together."

Grenier was forced to pull out of France's World Cup campaign due to injury.
