Former Newcastle United defender Olivier Bernard has claimed that it is unlikely that the Magpies will be able to prise Clement Grenier from Lyon this summer.

The Premier League outfit have been strongly linked with a move for the midfielder in recent months, but Bernard believes that a deal is unlikely.

"For the money that's been spoken about [for Grenier], it's never going to happen," Bernard told the Evening Chronicle.

"I think if he goes, it'll be for £20m. It could even be a Champions League team. For me it will be a surprise if he goes to Newcastle. Sadly it could be a 90% no for Grenier to Newcastle."

Newcastle finished 10th in the Premier League last season.
