OGC Nice have announced a contract termination agreement with midfielder Mathieu Bodmer with immediate effect.
The news comes as little surprise, with the former PSG versatile central player having been expected to join fellow Ligue 1 outfit SM Caen in recent days.
The 34 year old is now a free agent and will be able to join whichever club he wishes.
Bodmer spent 3.5 years at OGC Nice, but the club could no longer give the player the game time that he desired in these final moments of his career.
This decision on the part of Les Aiglons surely means that they are very close to announcing the signing of a defensive midfielder, with Jean Michael Seri away at the African Cup of Nations with the Ivory Coast.
