Claude Puel Confirms Michel Bastos Will Remain With Lyon

Lyon coach Claude Puel has dismissed any chance of Michel Bastos leaving the French club this summer.

On Wednesday, the Ligue 1 giants released an official statement saying the player was definitely not for sale and Puel has confirmed he will be in the squad for the coming 2010-11 campaign after speaking with the Brazilian winger.

"He won't move [away] from here," he explained at a press conference.

"We talked about it and he wants to stay. I can remove any doubts."

Bastos has reportedly been of great interest to Serie A outfit Juventus, who are looking to make more moves on the transfer market before the Italian season begins at the end of August. He consistently featured as a left-back for Brazil at the 2010 World Cup.
