Obertan plays down Lille link

Gabriel Obertan will not be moving to Lille, he has insisted.

The French champions look likely to have to replace Gervinho, seemingly set for a move to Arsenal.

“I will not be loaned to Lille, for now,” Obertan told France Football.

“I should know if Manchester wants to loan me and if they want to [loan me] to Lille.

“For now, I do not know.”
