Montpellier expect reported Arsenal and Newcastle United transfer target Olivier Giroud to stay put in the summer.

Montpellier's sporting director Jose Anigo believes that Olivier Giroud will remain with the club beyond the end of the current campaign.

The French striker has been linked with moves to Arsenal and Newcastle United in recent weeks.

However, Anigo expects that the temptation of Champions League football will be enough to convince the 25-year-old to stay put.

"This is a player who wants to play in the Champions League next season and it seems we are not going to get there," Anigo told OMTV.

"That is why I do not believe we have any chance to sign him. I don't believe he will leave France this summer because he will want to play with Montpellier in the Champions League."

Giroud has scored 18 goals in the league this season.
