Marseille have confirmed they are willing to let Djibril Cisse leave the club.
Cisse has returned to Stade Velodrome after Sunderland opted against taking up the option of signing the striker on a permanent basis following his loan spell at the Stadium of Light.
Tottenham are reported to be interested in signing the former Liverpool player, with Cisse also thought to be keen to stay in England.
Marseille sporting director Jose Anigo has admitted Cisse does not figure in their future plans and that they would be open to loaning out the French international again next season.
"I do not have any issue with him," Anigo told La Provence.
"He has announced that the club is not big enough for him. You cannot say something and then the contrary.
"Even if he remains under contract with us, it would be fine if he played elsewhere next season."
