Bafetimbi Gomis: Staying at Lyon

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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
