Sidney Govou has revealed he is considering a number of options as he prepares to leave Lyon.

The French international played his last game for Lyon against Le Mans after 11 successful years at Stade Gerland.

Govou is available on a free transfer and a number of clubs are thought to be chasing his signature.

Skysports.com understands West Ham are leading the chase for the winger after Sevilla dropped their interest in the 30-year-old.

Govou is relaxed about being a free agent and insists he will not rush into making a decision on his future.

"For sure, I will not play for Lyon next season," Govou told skysports.com.

"I have some contacts and I am relaxed as coaches know what I can bring to their team.

"I never said my ambition is to play in this or that league. I am open [to offers] and relaxed."
