Lyon on Friday confirmed France goalkeeper Gregory Coupet is heading to Atletico Madrid after the two clubs agreed a fee of 1.5million euros.

The 35-year-old told the French champions he wanted to leave for the Spanish capital last month but the fee proved a stumbling block.

Atletico were unwilling to meet the 3million euros price tag stipulated in the player´s contract to facilitate an early release from the contract which ran until 2010.
