Olympique Lyon are trying to revive talks with Newcastle United over the sale of Bafetimbi Gomis.

The Evening Chronicle says Gomis could see his departure from Lyon accelerated with the Ligue 1 side's Champions League exit looming large.

Sources in France have indicated that they will try to make ends meet by offering Newcastle another bite of the cherry with Gomis.

However, having being messed around by Lyon last time around, Newcastle are looking at other options and the ball remains in the French side's court after the deal collapsed earlier in the summer.
