The 31-year-old Dutch forward joined the club last July in a bid to rebuild his career after unsuccessful spells at Newcastle United, Valencia and PSV Eindhoven.

However, he managed only 10 starts for the French side, scoring four goals.

While Puel confirmed that Kluivert was set to move on, he quick to point out that the decision for him to leave was down to sporting reasons.

"If you look at on the pitch matters, he hasn't had as many games as he would have liked and we could have some reservations about that," Puel told French sport daily L'Equipe.

"However, overall I'm very satisfied with what he brought to the group in training and in the dressing room.

"Compared to the player we'd heard about - the ego this kind of player could have - he was always very positive for the group.

"All season he has set an example with his relationships within the club and his behaviour.

"His team-mates have seen that he is a great player and a great professional.

"I'm very satisfied with him. I'll judge him on what he has brought to the club in a global sense."

Polish champions Wisla Krakow are reportedly set to make a bid for the player, who enjoyed stints at Ajax, AC Milan and Barcelona earlier in his career.
