Lyon are confident of convincing keeper Anthony Lopes to sign a new deal with the club.

Lopes, 28, is out of contract next summer but Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas expects the shot-stopper to put pen to paper on a new deal soon.

‘We are still very, very close to an agreement with Anthony Lopes, we even agree with him, now we have to agree with his agents, does it look complicated? Long does not necessarily mean complicated,’ Aulas told reporters.

The France-born Portugal international has made nearly 300 appearances for Lyon and has spent his entire career with the club after coming through the youth academy.
