Lyon goalkeeper Gregory Coupet has admitted he may turn down the offer of a contract extension with the Ligue 1 leaders in order to move to England.

Both French international goalkeeper Coupet, 35, and Brazilian forward Fred have been offered new deals with the six times French champions, but Coupet admits that he may consider a new challenge instead.

He told OLTV: "We´re talking about an extension of a few years followed by a change of role, notably that of coaching the young goalkeepers. However, I have to consider my family in my thinking about this negotiation."
