Lyon are confident both Francois Clerc and Sylvain Wiltord will stay put this summer.
Lyon supremo Jean-Michel Aulas remains confident that young full back Francois Clerc will stay with the club.
The 22-year-old is out of contract in the summer and a host of clubs from throughout Europe are tracking him.
Clerc has been unsure whether to prolong his stay at the Stade Gerland as he has only recently made the breakthrough into the first team.
However, despite the interest in him - Aulas is more than hopeful that Clerc will sign.
"I believe 99.9 percent that Francois Clerc will remain at Lyon next season," said Aulas.
Meanwhile, Aulas also confirmed that talks over a new deal for Marseille target Sylvain Wiltord are progressing.
"On Thursday we met Sylvain to talk about his future," said Aulas.
"We absolutely want to keep him. He already has an option for an additional year.
"I don't think he will ever go to Marseille. Moreover, if L'OM wants him, they will have to pay a transfer."
