Clement Grenier insists he's not pushing to leave Olympique Lyon.

Newcastle United have been linked with a move for the France international midfielder, who has claimed he has a knock and is not seeking a move.

Grenier posted on his personal website: "I have read a lot of things about myself recently.

"Just to be clear, Lyon's medical and technical staff have set me a specific programme so I can be back at 100 per cent.

"That includes a period spent training indoors. That is why I have not been present at some of the training sessions.

"I have no problem with the club and have never missed a training session intentionally.

"There is no controversy and my intention is to be back on the pitch and competing as soon as possible."
