Blanc urges Newcastle, Sunderland target Gamiero to stay in France

France coach Laurent Blanc has urged Lorient striker Kevin Gameiro to stay home.

Gameiro has been linked with Sunderland and Newcastle United.

"Kevin has the choice to leave Lorient. It is up to him to evaluate his sporting interest," Blanc told reporters. "I won't make the decision. A great French club is not unattractive.

"Leaving for abroad is not that easy. If after three months you cannot score, there are no favours. It is a risk.

"If he feels really strongly he can finally join a big foreign club."
