PARIS (Reuters) - Olympique Lyonnais on Wednesday confirmed earlier reports saying there were talks between potential investors and current shareholders who intend to sell their stakes, which could lead to a reshuffle at its board of directors and strengthening its equity capital.
"The process is ongoing. There is no certainty at this stage that the discussions will result in a transaction," the club said without giving any names.
French media L'Equipe earlier said U.S. sports investor Forster Gillett will likely become Lyon's new majority owner.
