Newcastle could yet make late move for £15m PL star



Newcastle United are still said to be keen on signing Olivier Giroud from Chelsea by the Northern Echo.

Newcastle were linked with Giroud early on in the January transfer window, but the reports went cold.

However, Newcastle are now keeping a keen eye on developments with the French international, as the transfer window creeps closer to closing.

Giroud is being linked with both Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur currently, but Newcastle are keeping close tabs on the situation.
