The Belgian centre-back joined City in 2013 but failed to make a single senior appearance for the club after graduating from the academy one year on from his arrival.
Denayer spent last season on loan at Galatasaray, scoring one goal in 22 appearances during his second spell with the Turkish outfit to help the club to the league and cup double.
The 23-year-old has also spent temporary stints at Celtic and Sunderland, enjoying particular success with the former where he was named the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year and Celtic’s Young Player of the Year.
Denayer also won the Scottish Premiership and League Cup double during his time with the Bhoys, although his loan move to Sunderland saw him miss much of the 2016-17 campaign with injury.
The eight-time Belgium international will now continue his career at Lyon, although the length of his deal at the Ligue 1 outfit has not been disclosed.
