Unsettled midfielder Charles N'Zogbia has revealed his intention to leave Newcastle United in a bid to fulfill his career ambitions.
The 22-year-old Frenchman has spent four years on Tyneside but doesn't believe staying with the Magpies will allow him to reach his potential.
N'Zogbia has made almost 150 first-team appearances during his time at St James' Park.
"After four years at Newcastle, I want to reach a higher level of ambition. I don't think that is possible here," he is quoted as saying.
"I've given my all to the club and I will go on to do so as long as I play. But I would like to reach a new level by finding a new challenge at a new side."
