Remy Cabella says he is ready to make a decision regarding his future, but will wait until after the World Cup to do so.
The Montpellier midfielder has been the subject of interest from the Premier League for several summers, but is finally set to leave the Ligue 1 outfit.
Despite winning Ligue 1 in 2012, Montpellier battled against relegation for the majority of the season, and president Louis Nicollin rejected Newcastle's attempts to sign Cabella in January so he could help them survive. Nicollin later admitted that he promised the player he could leave in the summer if he stayed.
But Cabella himself has yet to decide where his future lies, but says he will not let that uncertainty affect his preparations for the World Cup, where he will compete with France.
"I know I have a choice to make," Cabella told Midi Libre.
"I will look at it all after I finished training with Les Bleus."
Although Newcastle will almost certainly revitalise their interest this summer, Arsenal and Manchester United are both reportedly keen on the schemer.
Arsenal have held a long-term interest in the player, and Nicollin has also confirmed that he would rather see Cabella leave for the Gunners or Manchester United than Newcastle.
He told reporters recently: "Would I advise him against joining Newcastle? Yes definitely. Arsenal, why not?
"In England you have to go to Arsenal, Chelsea or any of the two Manchester teams."
Arsenal are reportedly in the market for a midfielder as part of a £100m transfer spending spree. Arsene Wenger must first sign a new contract, however.
Cabella has also drawn admiring glances from Old Trafford in recent seasons, but it is not known whether incoming manager Louis van Gaal will agree with the reports from Manchester United scouts.
