Malbranque pens new deal

Veteran Lyon star Steed Malbranque has signed a new two-year deal with the club.

The 34-year-old began his career at Lyon before a 10-year stint in England with Tottenham, Fulham and Sunderland.

He returned to Lyon in 2012, and has now agreed a deal to keep him at the club until 2016.

"I had a big desire to go on with the club where I have been educated," said Malbranque.

"I had the opportunity to extend and I am delighted to have done it.

"I met new coach Hubert Fournier whom I already knew, having played two years with him at Lyon when I was younger."
