Spending last season on loan at Sunderland, Jason Denayer continues to run down his Manchester City contract far away from the Etihad, and that trend doesn’t look like it’s going to end just yet.

Already loaned to Celtic, Galatasaray and the Black Cats, the 21-year-old could give Ligue 1 a try.

The rumours that Lyon were interested in the Belgian defender have grown from strength to strength over the past few days, and DH in Belgium on Monday seem to think it’s on the right tracks.

The Belgian newspaper have published an article on their website claiming that Jason Denayer and Lyon have reached an agreement over personal terms, suggesting the young defender would be open to a move there.

After all, a move to Lyon isn’t exactly a bad one, what with Europa League football to look forward to and a very good group of players to learn from.

Furthermore, spending a season playing as a defensive midfielder under David Moyes, showing an ability for the role, would provide Lyon depth in two positions, and with Maxime Gonalons possibly on his way out, they’ll need it.

All that’s left now is for Manchester City and Lyon to agree to terms, most likely a loan.
