"First of all I wish to apologise to the fans for wanting to leave the club," the 22-year-old Frenchman said in a statement.
"However, having been insulted by Joe Kinnear, I will never play for him again while he remains Newcastle manager.
"The club are aware that there are offers on the table for me and they should accept one of them."
Man, it rains hard in Newcastle.
