Boumsong urges Lyon to sign Vieira

The 33-year-old has been linked with a move to Lyon after failing to get a regular place in the Inter Milan team last season.

“He could contribute a great deal to the club and fill the gap left by the departure of Juninho,” Boumsong told reporters at Lyon’s training camp in this French Alpine resort.

“He has been captain of France and the experience and the aura he radiates could only add value to our team,” he added.
