Lyon have agreed a deal to sell Sylvain Wiltord to Rennes after turning down an offer from Valencia for Kim Kallstrom.
Wiltord's future at the French champions has been uncertain, with Rennes spending several weeks trying to arrange a transfer.
Rennes have now seen an offer accepted by Lyon, who will leave a decision in the hands of the France international.
"We are in agreement with Rennes," Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas told the club's official website.
"It is now up to Sylvain to agree terms with the Brittany club."
Meanwhile, reports in Spain claim that Lyon have rejected a bid from Valencia for Swedish midfielder Kallstrom.
Valencia offered ,é¼11million (£7.4million) for Kallstrom, whose goal against Bolton Wanderers secured Lyon the Peace Cup in South Korea.
But Aulas is reported to have knocked back the bid, with the club's midfield having been weakened by the exits of Alou Diarra, Tiago and Florent Malouda.
