Florent Malouda: France international happy to be leaving Chelsea

The £13.5million signing from Lyon in the summer of 2007 was frozen out of the first-team at Stamford Bridge this season, failing to make a single appearance.

Malouda's last outing for the Blues came in their UEFA Champions League final triumph over Bayern Munich 12 months ago.

But with his contract having now reached a conclusion, the 32-year-old winger is keen to make a fresh start, with former club Lyon one side reported to be interested in his services.

He told The Sun: "I had a problem to sort out with certain people. It's done. Now, I'm free.

"I'm going to be able to play again next season and I cannot wait.

"I've been preparing all year long. I'll be back next season."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
