Montpellier say Giroud has signed for Arsenal

 

Montpellier president Louis Nicollin has claimed Arsenal have completed the signing of France forward Olivier Giroud. Giroud is thought to command a transfer fee in the region of €16 million. The 25-year-old scored 25 goals to help Montpellier win the Ligue 1 title last season, igniting the interest of several top clubs.

Norwich City goalkeeper John Ruddy has signed a new four-year contract with the Premier League club.

Blackburn have made their first signing of the summer by bringing in Fulham captain Danny Murphy on a two-year contract. The 35-year-old returns to the north-west, where he previously played for Liverpool and Crewe.
