Spurs target Fred wants Lyon stay

Olympique Lyon striker Fred insists he wants to stay with the French giants.

Tottenham came close to landing the Brazil international last summer and he was also linked with Everton and Sunderland.

"I can assure everyone that my priority is to stay at Lyon," he said.

I will not talk to another club before discussing with president (Jean-Michel) Aulas. That is what I am going to say to my brother, who is my agent.

"We have already received one offer (from Lyon) last year but we didn't accept it. After the recent game against Nice, the president spoke about another meeting. I hope that will happen before January.

"I repeat, I have given my word to the president that I will not talk to another club beforehand."
