Gerard Houllier will not be leaving Lyon this summer to join Manchester City or any other club, according to the French champions.

City are searching for a new manager after sacking Stuart Pearce on Monday and Houllier, the former Liverpool boss, had been linked with the post but now looks set to stay at Lyon after they released a statement in reaction to a newspaper report which linked their manager with the coach´s position at Ukraine giants Dynamo Kiev.

"Gerard Houllier formally denies the information which appeared this morning in daily newspaper Le Parisien, suggesting his departure to Dynamo Kiev for the 2007/2008 season," read the statement published on Lyon´s official website.
