Coach Claude Puel, who was rumoured to be leaving a few months ago, has signed an extension for two years, meaning he is now under contract until 2007.
Milenko Acimovic has officially penned a three-year deal, after joining permanently from Tottenham, and Nicolas Plestan is also now a Lille player after his move from Monaco was cemented.
Les Dogues are now talking to Arsenal stopper Stathis Tavlaridis in a bid to clinch his signature, as the Greek defender has impressed since joining LOSC on loan, but there will be a couple of exits at the club.
Mathieu Delpierre and Mile Sterjovski are quitting Stade Grimonprez Jooris for pastures new after they were not granted contract extensions.
Delpierre is a France Under-21 international while Sterjovski is an Australian striker.
