Tottenham defender Serge Aurier says he will not sign a new Spurs contract and claims he has reached an agreement to leave the club.

The Ivory Coast right-back says he has reached the "end of a cycle" in north London with a year remaining on his contract at Spurs.

The 28-year-old, who joined Spurs from Paris Saint-Germain in 2017, also says a return to the French capital and a potential reunion with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino would be his preferred move this summer.

"Everyone knows that if I wanted to extend my contract at Tottenham, I'd have already done so," he told L'Equipe.

"I'm not going to do that in six months' time. I've experienced the Premier League and a Champions League final. I've reached the end of a cycle and it's time to look elsewhere.

"Both parties, the board and my agents are in agreement in terms of the conditions, so we will see.

"I've never hidden my desire to go back to PSG one day. It's my boyhood club and I'm still a PSG supporter, so I feel free to talk about it, but I don't want people to think I'm just issuing a come-and-get-me plea and I'm not closing the door on anyone.
