The 31-year-old joined Rovers in 2009, but with only a year left on his current contract the Frenchman looks set to exit Ewood Park.

It is understood that the defender is hoping to receive a pay-off from the Championship club in return for agreeing to leave.

Once that has been agreed then the player will be able to join Livorno as a free agent.
