Lyon coach: Man Utd's Heinze the type we want

Olympique Lyon coach Alain Perrin admits they're keen on Manchester United defender Gaby Heinze.

Perrin is in the market for a top class defender after losing new captain Cris for six months with a knee injury.

"He has the profile," the former Sochaux boss said of the Argentina international, who can play at left-back or centre-half.

"It is necessary to know if the player, who has spent a large part of his career at left-back, really wants to play regularly at centre-back."
