Lyon have confirmed that 21-year-old attacking midfielder Yassin Fékir has signed a new contract with the club, now taking him to until 2020.
Bruno Génésio confirmed the news in this afternoon’s press conference, and insisted that the move was not an attempt to convince his brother and captain Nabil Fékir to remain with the club:
“We extended his deal because of what he can bring on the pitch, not to influence Nabil. He is a player with precision, who can play in practically every attacking position. He started well this morning, with good physical tests.”
