Nabil Fekir has “turned the page” on his failed move to Liverpool.

Fekir seemed destined to move to Liverpool in the summer, with the club agreeing a fee with Lyon ahead of the World Cup.

The move collapsed when Liverpool asked the player to undergo two medicals, having discovered a potential problem relating to a previous knee injury.

Negotiations were not resumed after the World Cup, leaving Fekir to play the season at Lyon.

The 26-year-old insists the chapter of his Liverpool move is firmly closed.

“What happened with Liverpool is straight out of my head, I turned the page,” Fekir said.

“We must not stop at this, we must move forward. There are things that must be accepted.

“My future? We have not discussed an extension yet, we will see what happens.”
