CHRISTOPHE Galtier says will stay at St Etienne until at least the end of the season.

Galtier has been strongly linked with the managerial post at Newcastle United, soon to be vacated by Crystal Palace-bound Alan Pardew.

But St Etienne’s head coach has insisted that it is his “duty” to stay at his club.

“I have a duty to my club and my players,” said Galtier.

“I am and will be the manager of St Étienne until the end of the season.”
