Newcastle United's hopes of signing Gueida Fofana have been dashed after Lyon confirmed he has signed a new two-and-half year deal.

The highly-rated 22-year-old midfielder was reportedly high on Newcastle's list of targets, whilst Arsenal and Chelsea had also been linked.

But the 22-year-old - who arrived from Le Havre in 2011 - has committed his future to Lyon, where he has become a first-team regular.

"We had started discussions and at times things went hot and cold, but it is with great satisfaction that I have now extended at a great club like Lyon," a delighted Fofana told the club's website.
