After a calamitous first half to the season, Olympique Lyonnais limited the damage with a series of three victories in extremis. Under the leadership of Pierre Sage, appointed in place of Fabio Grosso, the Gones have climbed out of the red zone, although they are only two points ahead of their nearest pursuer and play-off opponent, Toulouse. As announced by their boss, John Textor, OL want to take advantage of the winter mercato to strengthen their squad, and a candidate has come forward in the person of Yann M’Vila.

Without a club ut I didn’t get the little thing. Given my qualities and my leadership, I think I can help a lot of teams. I believe in myself. I don’t need money, I just want to play.

A win-win situation?

This is obviously a hidden appeal to Olympique Lyonnais, who have a total budget of fifty million euros to strengthen their squad, and who wouldn’t be averse to acquiring an experienced player to beef up a midfield that has been woefully lacking in consistency in recent months. In the meantime, Yann M’Vila is continuing to work hard on his fitness at Lyon.
