Diego Lugano says he will not be spending another season at Malaga, but he does intend to leave Paris St Germain this summer.

The Uruguayan defender spent the second half of the 2012/13 campaign in Spain after falling out of favour in France.

The 32-year-old does not expect to see that agreement extended and will return to PSG for pre-season training.

Lugano will, however, be looking to make his way through the exit door at Parc des Princes at some stage during the current transfer window.

He told Urugol: "I will return to Paris St Germain. I was only on loan to Malaga and it is over, so I am returning to Paris.

"What else can I say? There is nothing to say yet. I will return to PSG and do the pre-season with the intention of leaving.

"I haven't decided where yet. I will return to France, but I will be trying to leave.

"I say try because I am a PSG player and they won't let me leave if they think I can be of use there. The idea is that they will give me the freedom to find another team."
