The agent of Lyon playmaker Yoann Gourcuff has rubbished the latest reports linking his client with a move during the winter transfer window.
Despite the player, his club and his representatives making regular denials regarding speculative stories, rumours continue to suggest that the France international could soon be on his way out of Stade Gerland.
Gourcuff has struggled to impose himself at Lyon, leading some to question whether it would be advisable for him to stay.
It is claimed that a change of scenery could do him good and help to kick-start a career which has promised much but is in danger of going stale.
The 25-year-old is determined to make things work at Lyon, though, and his representative says there is no chance of him heading for pastures new in January.
"We've spoken with Gourcuff and he has no reason to leave Lyon," said Jean-Pierre Bernes.
"It would be completely absurd. I'm willing to take this step but I have to be thoroughly convinced of his interest. And that's not the case."
Gourcuff, who has been heavily linked with Arsenal, has struggled with injuries this season and has been restricted to just seven outings in Ligue 1.
He is, however, happy to keep plugging away in his current surroundings, especially as his thoughts are starting to turn towards possible involvement at Euro 2012.
"He's at a good club," added Bernes. "He's been injured, he needs time.
"I can't see how this player could fail to impose himself at Lyon. I don't see the point in finding a new club three or four months before Euro 2012. He will play at Lyon."
