Plea satisfied with Nice exit as big changes beckon

20 mayo 2018 14:07

Premier League target Alassane Plea believes the time is right to leave Nice as he follows Lucien Favre out of the Ligue 1 club.

The former France youth international had already flagged his intention to depart at the end of the season and signed off with a brace in the final-day 3-2 defeat to Lyon as his team fell a point short of the European places.

Those goals took Plea's season tally to 21 in all competitions and he has now decided to pursue a new challenge, with Leicester City and Newcastle United rumoured to be interested.

His decision comes as Favre also bids goodbye ahead of an expected appointment at Borussia Dortmund.

"It's a good time to change clubs after four years in Nice," Plea told L'Equipe.

"I have a good exit. We're losing a great coach and this is a chance [to bring in new players]."

The 25-year-old's departure means Nice's next head coach will have problems to solve in attack, with Mario Balotelli out of contract and expected to seek a return to Italy.
