Newcastle told they're too small for Montpellier striker Giroud

Montpellier owner Louis Nicollin has branded Newcastle United 'too small' for star striker Olivier Giroud.

Nicollin also dismissed speculation that the club would be prepared to sell Giroud for a fee in the region of €10million (£8.3m) in the January transfer window.

"Newcastle? They are too small for him," Nicollin told RTL.

"Arsenal? We must see if Arsene Wenger is interested because he has Van Persie.

"€10m? He won't go for that.

"Given that he still has more than two years left on his contract, he'll cost a lot more, either €50m (£41.7m) or €60m (£50m)."
