Montpellier chairman Louis Nicollin has insisted that he will not part company with Newcastle transfer target Olivier Giroud in the January transfer window.

Giroud had been quoted as saying that he liked the Barclays Premier League and that he could be interested in leaving the club.

But Nicollin has said that this will not be happening and Montpellier want to remain at the top of Ligue 1.

"It is very clear, no player we want to keep will leave during the winter transfer window," he told

Giroud has attracted attention after scoring 12 goals in 15 games this season and has also been linked with Arsenal in recent days.

Newcastle were thought to be in the box seat though, and Alan Pardew has bought players from France for the Toon before including Yohan Cabaye, Sylvain Marveaux and Mehdi Abeid.

Cabaye in particular has looked the part but it seems unlikely that Giroud will be joining his compatriot at St James' Park.
