AUXERRE, France. Apr 13 (PA) – Poland striker Ireneusz Jeleń has announced he will leave Ligue 1 side Auxerre at the end of the season.
News of the player leaving comes a few weeks shortly after Jeleń was outed from international duty due to injury with coach Smuda.
The 30-year-old has played 135 times for Jean Fernandez’s side since moving from Wisła Płock in 2006, scoring 48 goals, but he is set to leave the Stade de l’Abbe-Deschamps at the end of the current campaign.
Auxerre are currently third from bottom in Ligue 1 and Jeleń has been linked with the likes of Zenit St Petersburg and Olympiacos.
In an interview with Gazeta Wyborcza reported in L’Equipe, Jelen said: “I shall help to keep Auxerre in Ligue 1 but afterwards I will go to a bigger club. I will not prolong my contract.”
Agent Tomasz Kaczmarczyk added: “We exclude nothing, but Ireneusz prefers a club in Western Europe. I will show him a few offers in May, he will choose the best.”
