Lyon striker Fred has ended speculation about his future by announcing he will be staying with the French champions until the end of the season.

The Brazil international has been linked with a number of clubs, notably Paris St Germain and Tottenham, since stating his desire to leave Les Gones after losing his place in the first team, but with Spurs´ interest cooling and PSG pulling out of the running to sign him on Thursday, the 24-year-old has decided to stay put.

"I haven´t received any good offers," he said. "From now on, I am no longer talking about a transfer, I am 100% a Lyon player."
