Flying Brazilian full back Michel Bastos has ended talk of a move to Juventus by declaring his wish to remain with Lyon.

Bastos has been the subject of intense interest from the Bianconeri this summer and was willing to head to Serie A if Juventus could agree a fee with Les Gones for his services.

But Juventus failed to do this, despite repeated attempts to negotiate with Lyon. And now Bastos is planning for an extended stay at the Stade Gerland.

"Juve presented two bids that Lyon did not accept", said the Brazilian.

"Now, in my head I needed to be sure, I know where I want to play.

"I was tired of waiting and I made a decision.

"I stay at Lyon."
