The English top flight site has announced that the former Paris Saint-Germain star will leave on Tuesday
Serge Aurier and Tottenham Hotspur have parted ways by mutual agreement, the English Premier League club has announced.
After representing Ligue 1 side Paris Saint-Germain for three years, the Ivory Coast international joined the North London side on 31 August 2017 for a fee of around £ 23 million.
At Spurs, the right-back was a key figure with 77 English top-flight games with five goals to spare. He also played five times when the club reached the final of the Champions League 2018-19 – where they bowed to Liverpool in the final, which played in Madrid.
Although no reason was given for mutual termination of the contract, the club wished the African star all the best for the future.
“The club may confirm Serge Aurier’s resignation following the mutual termination of his contract,” a statement from Spurs website read.
“Signed from PSG in August 2017, Serge made his debut in our 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League before playing 110 games for us and scoring eight goals.
“We thank Serge for his service and wish him all the best in the future.”
Meanwhile, the 28-year-old has appreciated Tottenham Hotspur while saying it was the right time for him to move.
“I have really enjoyed my time at Spurs and would like to thank the club and the fans, but I now feel it is the right time for me to move on to a new challenge,” Aurier was quoted as saying by the club’s website.
The Ivorian had expressed his desire to switch back to the Parc des Princes in an attempt to reunite with former Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino.
“Everyone is aware that if I wanted to extend my contract at Tottenham, I would have already done so. I will not do it in six months, ”he said The team.
“I have reached the end of a cycle and it is time to look elsewhere. The two parties, Tottenham’s board and my agents, have agreed on the terms. We’ll have to look into it.
“I have never hidden my desire to return to PSG one day. It’s my heart’s club, the one I support, and I’m welcome to talk about it.
“But I do not want people to think that I am stuck in them and I do not close the door on anyone.
“But if the club were to come up with an offer this summer, it is certain that PSG would be my first choice.”
