Congo international striker Shabani Nonda has announced that he will be leaving Monaco at the end of the season.

“I’ll be leaving for a foreign club. I have made up my mind about this as they (Monaco) have not offered me an extension to my contract,” the player said.

Nonda, 27 joined Monaco from Rennes to replace French striker David Trezeguet who moved to Juventus in 2000.

His best season came in 2002-03 when he was Ligue 1’s leading scorer with 26 goals.

He suffered a serious knee injury last season but struggled to recapture his previous form on his return to fitness.
