Due to Grégory Coupet's injury for the 2007 portion of the 2007–08 Ligue 1 season, Vercoutre became Lyon's first choice keeper and played in every game until Coupet's return. During that time, he made a crucial penalty save in the UEFA Champions League against Stuttgart which helped Lyon progress to the round of 16.
After the departure of Hugo Lloris to Tottenham Hotspur in August 2012, Vercoutre became the first choice goalkeeper for Lyon. At the end of the 2012–13 season, however, he lost the first-choice place to Anthony Lopes.
