Lille captain Gregory Tafforeau admits he will in all likelihood quit the club in the summer.
The former Caen favourite has recently been criticised by Lille official Xavier Thuilot over his demands for a new contract and this has left the player far from amused.
Tafforeau believes he has unfairly been cast as being greedy in his demands and angered by the club's public criticism, he is now considering his future.
Monaco, Rangers and now Newcastle reportedly remain keen on the 29-year-old and it seems likely that he will seek pastures new in the summer unless a compromise can be brokered with his current paymasters.
''I am 29-years-old, and I have had two clubs in my life, Caen and Lille,'' he told L'Equipe.
''I don't consider myself a man who plays for money, who is absolutely running after 'a last beautiful contract'.
''What Mr Thuilot stated deeply affected me. I can't understand. I was mad. Something has been broken. I can't see myself staying.
''During my last meeting with the officials, early this year, they proposed a two-year contract. The term suits me, but not the wages.
''I believe I deserve more. Also, that proposition came last winter, just when the officials knew Monaco were interested in me.
''Lille refused to let me leave during the winter transfer window. It is true, Monaco are still following me. They are not the only club.
''I know there is also an interest from Rangers, who are still waiting for my situation to become clearer.''
