Leicester striker Yann Kermorgant has been told he can join French side AC Arles Avignon on a season-long loan.
As reported by skysports.com, new manager Paulo Sousa has informed the player he is free to leave the club after being told he would not feature in his plans for the new season.
The 28-year-old is set to link up with Arles Avignon, who ply their trade in the top flight French division, Ligue 1.
Any move will come just 12 months after Kermorgant linked up with the Foxes after being signed by former boss Nigel Pearson.
The frontman found the net just once last season in a 2-0 home over Middlesbrough on the final day of the campaign.
His time at the Walkers Stadium ended unhappily following his penalty miss in the Championship play-off semi-final defeat to Cardiff.
A statement on the club's official website read: "Leicester City Football Club can confirm that Yann Kermorgant has been given permission to speak to French Ligue 1 side AC Arles Avignon regarding a season-long loan deal."
