Charles N'Zogbia has confirmed his intention to leave Newcastle United.
N'Zogbia's future at St James' Park has been the subject of conjecture amid reports that he has grown frustrated with his inconsistent chances in the first team.
The likes of Arsenal and Paris St Germain have been mooted as interested parties in the winger, while skysports.com understands Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is an admirer of his talent.
N'Zogbia is keen for a new challenge away from Tyneside and is hopeful of sealing an exit in the near future.
He told L'Equipe: "After four years at Newcastle, I want to reach a higher level of ambition. I don't think that is possible here.
"I have given my all to the club, and I will go on to do so as long as I play. But I would like to reach a new level by finding a new challenge at a new side."
Reports emanating from France suggest PSG could agree a swap deal for N'Zogbia with Mamadou Sakho heading in the opposite direction.
