Lyon captain Nabil Fekir is looking for a new agent after Jean-Pierre Bernes confirmed their working relationship has come to an end.

Fekir, part of France's World Cup-winning squad, stayed with the Ligue 1 side this season after a proposed summer move to Liverpool fell through.

The 25-year-old forward has remained in good form this season, scoring 12 goals in all competitions including one against Manchester City in the Champions League.

He has continued to be linked with a move away from his boyhood club but Bernes hinted a move to a big club could be "very difficult".

Speaking on Europe 1, Bernes said: "I terminated the contract on (Thursday). It was a choice (Fekir) took. He will certainly look for another agent.

"Like all human relationships, from time to time you can have a difference of opinion on someone's future or their behaviour.

"To get into one of the top 10 clubs is very difficult, you must have an approach.

"You must not place too much importance on the role of an agent. When you have a big player and a big club wants him, it is the club who come to see you. You are not soliciting interest."
