Gomis, who almost signed for Newcastle last month only for the move to collapse over wage demands, will stay with the Ligue 1 club for the whole of this campaign - having buried the hatchet with club chairman Jean-Michel Aulas.

Speaking to L'Equipe after the weekend stalemate with Rennes, Gomis said: "The chairman doesn't do only bad things towards me. He wanted to defend his interest and I defended mine.

"Now the transfer market is over and we have to work hand in hand again. I bear no grudge against him. I won't forget but I am just here to work.

"If I made a decision to stay, that means I respect the hierarchy. I will remain at Lyon until next summer."
