N'Zogbia keen on Lyon switch

Published Add your comment

Wantaway Newcastle midfielder Charles N'Zogbia has issued a 'come and get me' plea to Lyon.

N'Zogbia has indicated his desire to leave St James' Park, and claimed last week fellow Premier League clubs Tottenham and Aston Villa were chasing his services. N'Zogbia has now appealed to the French champions to make a bid.

"I am tuned in to it all but, having heard several rumours, I would like to receive something concrete," he told Aujourd'hui Sport. "It is up to them to approach Newcastle and me. I am waiting for them. Lyon, make a move!"

He added: "Ligue 1 for me is an unknown. Therefore, in some respects, it is attractive."

N'Zogbia, who is contracted to Newcastle until 2012, believes manager Joe Kinnear is "bluffing" when he says he will not let the 22-year-old go.

"The club want to sell some players, so why not me?" he added. "We will see if I get the green light.

"We have tried to get information to find out my price but Newcastle have said nothing."
