Lyon defender Cris has ended speculation over his future by signing a new deal at the club.
The Brazilian had been linked with a move away from Lyon with Panathinaikos believed to be chasing the defender.
The 33-year-old has spent the last six years at Stade Gerland, making over 200 appearances, since arriving from Cruzeiro in 2004.
Cris was delighted to pledge his future to Lyon insisting he is happy with life at the French club.
"My Lyon story is not finished. I and happy here and so is my family," said Cris.
