Uruguayan defender Diego Lugano has announced that he plans to leave Paris Saint-Germain in the January transfer window.
The experienced centre-back has been repeatedly linked with a January exit following a poor start to his career in France.
Despite having one and a half years left on his deal, Lugano has now confirmed reports that he will be leaving the French giants.
“France is finished. I still have a year and a half of contract with PSG, but we agreed that the best thing to do is find a solution,” the Uruguay captain told El Pais.
“In the next fortnight, at the latest, I should have found my next destination.”
Diego Lugano joined the Saints in the summer of 2011, but lost his place in the side after Thiago Silva and Alex arrived at the club.
He has failed to make a single appearance for the first team this season and it was only a matter of time before he would leave Parc des Princes.
Lugano, 32, is still held in high regard by a number of European sides and should have no problems finding a new club.
