Lyon: Reported Newcastle United target Bafetimbi Gomis will be staying at Lyon this season, the French Ligue 1 club's president said Sunday.

Jean-Michel Aulas said on Twitter that there was not enough time left to find a replacement for the France forward, who is in the final year of his contract with the club, and hence Gomis would not be sold.

Aulas said the club didn't want Gomis to reach the end of his contract and leave on a free transfer.
