Taylor Aims To Return Lyon To Better Times


Having saved Lyon from almost certain relegation in season 4, things were looking good after Game 10 with Lyon sitting 2nd in Div 2, what happened next is un-explainable  but Lyon plummeted to the bottom of Div 2 and found themselves relegated to Div 3, Taylor was removed from his position but was welcomed back less than 24hrs later when a move to England looked to be Niall Taylors next move, Niall signed on  with a 1 year contract with a chance of a 2 year option if Lyon return to div 2.




Since his fast return Taylor has been busy on the phone with agents looking to revitalise a squad, Out has went Fans favourite and Club Captain Mathieu  Valbuena with Russian International Roman Neustadter & Turkish U21 International Orkan Cinar making the move to France ” With Wesley Sneidjer already on his way and the chance to sign a commanding defender something we have been missing, I felt the time was right to let Mathieu leave, Mathieu has been a great servant and the star man in my season and a half here, hopefully he can inspire an Udinese side under new management.
Also arriving in France again from Udinese is Dutch Winger Luciano Narsingh ” we lacked pace last season and with Rachid  Ghezzal a later arribal last season I feel along with Luciano we will cause teams problem now.

Taylor has been linked with several names and no doubt will be linked with several more in his bid to return Lyon to Div 2, One player who wont be leaving is Cédric  Bakambu who this afternoon signed a new 2 year deal, ” I’m delighted that Cedric has decided to stay on a help us fight for promotion, he has had various offers to move on, but after hours of talks he signed on the line”
