The France international returns to Ligue 1 having spent one season with Dynamo Moscow after leaving Marseille

Lyon are poised to unveil former Marseille favourite Mathieu Valbuena at a press conference on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old left the south-coast club for Dynamo Moscow on a three-year deal 12 months ago and contriuted to a fourth-placed finish in the Russian Premier League.

Valbuena also started the current season with Dynamo but is set to return to Ligue 1 with Lyon, who are likely to announce the terms at Tuesday's news conference.

The club stated via their official website: "Do not miss the press conference on OLTV. From 17h Olympique Lyonnais will present its new recruit ..."

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas also tweeted, stating: "For OL [it] would be exceptional to have the attacking quartet of Alex [Lacazette], Nabil [Fekir], Claudio [Beauvue], and Mathieu in the same jersey."

France international Valbuena, who notched six goals and 17 assists in 40 appearances for Dynamo, was a reported target for Premier League duo Newcastle and West Ham prior to his return to Ligue 1.
