France international Yoann Gourcuff has set his sights on lifting silverware with new club Lyon.

Earlier in the week, the gifted playmaker completed a deal worth £18million from Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux.

The 24-year-old won the league title with Bordeaux in 2009, and he is keen to continue such success with Lyon.

"I hope to keep improving, to work well and blend in with the team and the coach's plans," Gourcuff said.

"We have a quality squad. I hope we will achieve great things and win titles."

Lyon coach Claude Puel, meanwhile, is keen to help schemer Gourcuff develop.

"Yoann has exactly the profile we were looking for," he said. "I hope he can help us reach another level."
