Paris:

France winger Mathieu Debuchy, under contract at Lille until 2015, has said he wants to leave the club and will not take part in training on Tuesday, according to L'Equipe.

"What I want is to leave. I want to play in another league. I've been talking with Lille for a while but unfortunately nothing's come of it," he was quoted as saying by the sports daily.

"I'm a little disappointed by how events have turned out. Training's due to start again on Tuesday but I won't be there. I wanted a month of holiday to recuperate completely. I need it," he added.

Debuchy, who was part of the France team that played in the European championship last month, has been linked to a number of clubs, including English Premiership side Newcastle United, where his international team-mate Yohan Cabaye plays.

The 26-year-old said playing with Cabaye at the northeast club was one of his "priorities", adding that Inter Milan had also expressed an interest.

"I'm 100 percent decided. I want to leave Lille. The coach wants to keep me but I won't change my mind," he said.
