LYON, France, Jan 25 (Reuters) - Swiss defender Patrick Mueller has agreed to join Olympique Lyon from Swiss side FC Basel, the French champions said on Wednesday.

The 29-year-old Mueller, who played for Lyon from 2000 to 2004, will have a medical on Thursday and should then sign for two and a half years for a transfer fee of around four million euros, a Lyon spokesman said.

The runaway Ligue 1 leaders badly needed a defender with Eric Abidal, Jeremy Berthod, Anthony Reveillere and Brazilian Claudio Cacapa all sidelined with injuries.
