Striker Loic Remy will stay with Nice next season after giving up on his desire to rejoin Lyon.
The 21-year-old former Lyon man has been keen to join the former champions after developing his skills in their academy.
Remy is unhappy with the speculation surrounding his future and is pleased he will now be staying at Nice for at least one more season.
"For me, the saga is over. I am a Nice player and I remain that," he told newspaper Nice-Matin.
"Of course returning home to Lyon was tempting but I accept Nice's wish.
"Before training (on Thursday), I spoke about it with (Nice coach) Didier Olle-Nicolle. He's counting on me.
"I never wanted to get into a fight with this club, who have offered me the chance to perform on the pitch.
"I owe them at least a year more. I am going to respect my promise."
