Lyon reaches agreement for Gourcuff

Lyon has reached an agreement with Bordeaux over the transfer of
France playmaker Yoann Gourcuff.

The two clubs agreed Monday on a transfer fee of $27.8

If the 24-year-old Gourcuff passes a medical it will be the
second major offseason signing for Lyon, which also recruited
winger Jimmy Briand from Rennes.

The move for Gourcuff may have been influenced by Honorato
Ederson’s long-term injury. The Brazilian playmaker hurt his
hamstring in a friendly between Brazil and the United States
earlier this month and will be sidelined for several months.
