Lyon coach Remi Garde is hoping for a quick resolution to the club's dispute with Bafetimbi Gomis, but refused to confirm the striker's future at the Stade de Garland is over.
Gomis was left in Lyon while his team-mates travelled to Tignes for a pre-season training camp as tensions over the club's desire to sell him continue.
President Jean-Michel Aulas has made it clear that he is hoping to release Gomis, who has one year remaining on his contract with the Ligue 1 club, with Lyon looking to get their finances in order.
Earlier in the week, OL blamed Gomis' resistance to leaving as the reason behind the sale of promising 17-year-old Anthony Martial to Monaco.
The France international has reportedly rejected a move to Premier League club Swansea and Garde is hoping the 27-year-old's future can soon be determined.
"It is not a pleasant situation. I hope there will be a satisfactory outcome for both parties," he said. "There are significant economic imperatives for the club and we can not go against these constraints.
"There is no desire to disrespect Bafe. My wish is really a solution is found. The decision to (leave) Bafe (in) Lyon was taken in consultation with the president. After that, can he stay? You know everything can go very quickly in football."
