Olympique Lyon fullback Aly Cissokho has revealed the interest of Newcastle United.

Newcastle have been linked with Cissokho in the last six months but the player admitted any potential move is not too advanced at this stage.

Defender Cissokho said: "I am waiting for the green light from Lyon.

"I am a Lyon player and if they agree a fee with a club, I will then talk to that club.

"But nothing is done yet and I have not been to Newcastle for a medical.

"Newcastle and Lyon are talking about me, but there are other teams interested as well."
