Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal: Why I rejected Everton

Olympique Lyon winger Rachid Ghezzal has spoken of rejecting Everton last summer.

Ghezzal admits he considered an offer from Everton, before committing to OL.

He recalled to Canal Football Club: "We are negotiating (about a new contract) and we are getting closer.

"This is not just about money but about sport. I have a coach who trusts me, we have a good group, and I was not going to leave.

"The project of Everton is less attractive than OL's."
