Lyon are set to tie up the transfer of Basel defender Patrick Muller on Thursday.

The Swiss international, who played for the Ligue One leaders until 2004, will rejoin Gerard Houllier's side subject to passing a medical.

After protracted talks Lyon have agreed to pay ‚é¼2 million (£1.4 million) for the 29-year-old, as they seek to ease their defensive crisis.

With several injured players Houllier will be grateful to land his man, and is likely to include him in the team to face Monaco this weekend.
