Nantes captain Mickael Landreau has confirmed he will move on from Les Canaris at the end of the season.

The keeper has given over a decade of sterling service to Nantes and feels the time is right for a move away from Stade de La Beaujoire.

"13 years after my arrival at Nantes, with 10 years with the professionals, I have decided to leave FC Nantes at the end of the season," said Landreau.

Landreau admits he agonised over his decision to leave Nantes.

"For a long time I told myself that situation would be difficult," he added. "It is a difficult moment.

"I am quite affected, because all those years here have been fantastic. The fans have been tremendous."

A clutch of clubs including Arsenal, Milan and Internazionale have been linked with the 26-year-old, but Paris Saint Germain remain favourites to land the classy custodian.

Landreau says he is not yet in a position to divulge the name of his new club.

"I have always wanted to improve and I believe that, to achieve it, I have to give myself new challenges," he added. "Today I won't give the name of the club.

"The officials of the club I chose will communicate when the time is right.

"As long as nothing is official I won't talk anymore about that situation.

"Now I will go on giving my best until the end of the season."
