Olympique Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas doesn't expect Bafetimbi Gomis to complete his move to Newcastle United this week.

Aulas says agents' fees still need to be negotiated at Newcastle's end.

"We decided that one of our two centre forwards should go, but it's not my choice, it's the sports policy makers. We agreed to the terms of Newcastle, who accepted those of Bafé.

"What may stall things is the conditions around the costs of agents. This should be resolved within eight days."
