Navas, 35, faces a very competitive goalkeeping division with Italian striker Gianluigi Donnarumma also at the club.

Navas is seen as a short-term solution to Newcastle’s defensive problems – only Norwich City have closed in more than the Magpies this season.

Reports from France, however, suggest that PSG have no interest in watching Navas leave the club, especially midway through a season in which they still have hopes of success at home and in Europe.

Donny van de Beek rejection

Apparently a player who will not end up at Newcastle United this month is Manchester United midfielder Donny van de Beek.

According to the Telegraph, despite Newcastle’s interest in a loan deal, the Dutchman has little interest in moving to St James’s Park, albeit temporarily, due to Newcastle’s ‘dangerous’ position in the league.

Van de Beek has seen little playing time at Manchester United since joining the club and has failed to make himself a regular member of Ralf Rangnick’s first team.

Hugo Ekitike competition

Newcastle may have received a new blow in their chances of picking up striker Hugo Ekitike, as another Premier League team has reportedly asked about his availability.

West Ham and Newcastle are thought to be the main interested parties in Ekitike’s signing this month, but it is now rumored that Chelsea have also shown interest in a switch to the 19-year-old.

Ekitike has scored eight goals and three assists in Ligue 1 this season and has attracted the attention of clubs across Europe.

His club Reims are reluctant to sell the striker this month and could be more open to a deal at the end of the season – something Chelsea are reportedly willing to accept.

Tottenham Hotspur have also been credited with an interest, but it is believed that Reims’ asking price for the teenager, around £ 25 million, is too high for many clubs to make a serious offer.
