Paris - Former France international lock Sebastien Chabal has left Metro Racing over a disagreement on a contract extension, the Top 14 club said.

Chabal, who was left out of the 2011 Rugby World Cup, has left "by mutual agreement" after failing to reach an agreement with president Jacky Lorenzetti on a contract extension and the "club's playing strategy", according to a Metro Racing statement on Thursday.

Chabal won 62 caps with France and had joined Metro Racing, in the outskirts of Paris, from English club Sale in 2009.

He has not played for France since Les Bleus's 22-21 defeat at the hands of Italy in last year's Six Nations. Chabal, who is not in this year's Six Nations squad, is now free to join any club.
