Lyon forward Memphis Depay has admitted that he has not ruled out staying with the French side until the end of the season.

The Dutchman came close to joining Barcelona last summer and is still near the top of Barca boss Ronald Koeman’s wish list. 

Having entered the final six months of his contract, it has been suggested that Lyon would look to offload Depay for whatever money they could find now instead of letting him leave for free, but the 26-year-old is in no rush to leave.

‘I’m happy here,” he told Canal+. “We have a great team, I really like the president, we’ll see what happens.

“The president and I know what has happened in the last four seasons. Let’s keep going and enjoy my time here. I might be here until the end of the season. Let’s focus on Saturday’s game, let’s be happy, we have a great team.”
