Chelsea to trigger option in Giroud deal

Chelsea are keeping hold of Olivier Giroud for next season.

Off contract in June, Giroud will stay another 12 months, reports Telefoot.

Chelsea have decided to trigger the year's option in Giroud's deal to keep him in London until 2020.

The France World Cup winner is a target for Lyon and Marseille with his contract winding down.

However, it now appears Chelsea will insist Giroud stick around another 12 months with the club now serving a two window transfer ban.
