Newcastle target Gomis: I'm not moving for money

Off contract Lyon striker Bafetimbi Gomis insists his next move won't be influenced by money.

Newcastle United, Queens Park Rangers, Fiorentina and Wolfsburg have all been linked with the 28-year-old Ligue 1 goal-getter.

But with the transfer window now beginning to hot up, Gomis said: "I never thought only of money.

"I could move to Russia where I was offered to double my salary."

However, Gomis all but moved out a move to a rival Ligue 1 club.

He said: "Staying in France?

"I do not think so.

"Apart Paris or Monaco and I doubt they make me an offer.

"I can find something else, a new culture."
