West Ham's Faubert wants to go home to France

West ham United midfielder Julien Faubert is desperate to clinch a move to Lyon because he believes it would enhance his prospects of a return to the France squad.

"I am crossing my fingers - the two clubs are in talks," Faubert said.

"Lyon would really be great. I would rediscover Ligue 1 and France but also the Champions League and the eyes of the national-team coach. Because my aim still remains the 2010 World Cup."
