Benoit Cheyrou confirms that he is a free agent after his Marseille contract was terminated at a tribunal.

Benoit Cheyrou has confirmed that he is now a free agent after his contract with Ligue 1 leaders Marseille was terminated at a tribunal.

Despite playing a key role for the team since his arrival in 2007, the 33-year-old dropped down the pecking order following Marcelo Bielsa's appointment and has not made an appearance this season.

"My contract with Olympique de Marseille is terminated," Cheyrou told footligue1.fr. "I am free of any commitment, I am no longer under contract with OM from today.

"My situation was not clear to me and there was much confusion between the management, the coach and myself."

Cheyrou won three major honours, including the Ligue 1 title in 2010, during his time with Marseille.
