Boumsong expects to stay at Juve

Published Add your comment

Lyon´s hopes of prising Jean-Alain Boumsong from Juventus look to be doomed after the defender claimed he was "99%" sure he would be staying at the Turin giants.

France centre-back Boumsong has been linked with a move to Les Gones, who are looking to bolster their defence after seeing their captain Cris ruled out for six months with a knee injury. But the 27-year-old, who claims he has not yet been approached by Lyon, confirmed he was likely to stay in Italy for this season.

"I see myself at Juventus," said Boumsong. "If a club of the same ilk proposes something to me, I will study it out of respect. Lyon are of the same ilk. But at the moment, I have received no concrete proposition from this club."
