Rolan scored 15 goals in Ligue 1 for Bordeaux last season and has been linked with the two Premier League clubs but, while Triaud admitted Newcastle have an interest, he has played down talk that Villa may also be keen.
“There has been contact with Newcastle, but never directly with us, only through various intermediaries,” Triaud said. “With Newcastle, I suppose you could say there is some truth in their interest.”
“I’ve never heard talk of Aston Villa. They have never contacted us directly nor indirectly, via any agent, at the time of speaking.”
