Olympique Lyon forward Jimmy Briand has revealed interest from West Bromwich Albion.

Briand is ruling nothing out, but is adamant that he has expressed no desire to leave Stade Gerland.

He said on his future: "In 15 games last season I scored only one goal. That is not the kind of return I was expecting. There is some disappointment in that.

"Lyon are a great club, though, and I want to continue here unless I am deemed surplus to requirements.

"I know West Brom have asked about me, but nothing has been done as yet. Let's wait and see what happens."
