France World Cup winner has contract ripped up and only found out after he couldn’t get into training ground

    The attacker is believed to have turned up for training only to be refused access to the facilities due to his deal being ripped up.

    Former Newcastle flop Florian Thauvin is now on the hunt for a new club after being released by Mexican side Tigres UANL.

    The 29-year-old joined the club in 2021 and scored eight league goals in 38 appearances.

    He could go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport as a response to his exit from the club, according to FootMercato.

    But while that decision is set to be made, the Frenchman will have to find a new club.

    The 2018 World Cup winner with France is believed not to be short of options.

    The report suggests that Ligue 1 side Lyon are “very interested” in signing the former Marseille man.

    While LaLiga clubs Valencia and Celta Vigo are also credited with an interest in him.

    He also has another option of moving to the MLS.

    While the names of prospective clubs have not been linked, it would be an easier move for the winger than hopping back across the Atlantic Ocean.

    During his time at St James’ Park, Thauvin only featured 13 times in the Premier League and failed to score on each occasion.
