Montpellier upset with manner of Giroud move to Arsenal

Montpellier are furious over the manner of Olivier Giroud's move to Arsenal.

Montpellier president Louis Nicollin will not allow his players to insert buy-out clauses in their contracts because he is so angry at losing striker Giroud to Arsenal for £9.6m.

He said: "Allowing Giroud a €12m buyout clause was bloody silly. In future, there'll be no more buyout clauses."
