Lyon have accused Juventus of going back on their word after the French champions´ signing of Jean-Alain Boumsong was delayed.

The centre-back was expected to complete his move to Les Gones on Thursday after flying to France and undergoing a medical ahead of finalising personal terms, but Lyon claim Juve are stalling on the switch while they look for a replacement defender.

"Juventus are pushing back the deadline of the transfer having given their agreement," said Lyon sporting director Marino Faccioli.
