Yoann Gourcuff will not be leaving Lyon this month, according to president Jean-Michel Aulas.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas has insisted that midfielder Yoann Gourcuff will not be leaving the club this month.

The 25-year-old has long been linked with a move to Arsenal, with the Gunners having had a bid turned down for the player in the summer.

However, Aulas has told the Gunners that they would be wasting their time by submitting a second offer.

"The journalists writing that Gourcuff is on his way out are simply getting it wrong," said the president.

"He will be staying. I brought him here because I thought that with him in our ranks, we would have a side with added value, especially in the Champions League."

Gourcuff has been capped 28 times by the French national team.
