Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar to stay at Lyon

Lyon have officially taken in-demand pair Memphis Depay and Houssem Aouar off the market.

The French club informed both RMC Sport and L’Equipe that the deadline for sales has now passed, and both players will be in the OL squad to face Marseille on Sunday.

Barcelona have been eager to bring in Depay, 26, but have not been able to sell a player in time to finance a deal.

Meanwhile, Aouar is one of the most sought-after young midfielders in Europe and has been expected to leave.

Arsenal have been favourites to sign the 22-year-old, but the likes of PSG and Juventus have made approaches.

Now the official line from OL is that neither Depay or Aouar will be sold before the transfer window shuts.

Lyon have offloaded ten players this summer, while bringing in four new faces including €21m man Lucas Paqueta.

The future of Jeff Reine-Adelaide is in doubt despite Lyon accepting an offer of €27m from German club Hertha.

Reine-Adelaide had some disagreements with Hertha on Friday and he is no longer certain to leave.
