PSG midfielder Gini Wijnaldum wants a move to London this month.
The Telegraph says Newcastle had looked into the possibility of signing Wijnaldum on loan from PSG but have been given a similar answer.
Wijnaldum spent one season at St James’ Park after leaving PSV Eindhoven, but was sold to Liverpool after relegation to the Championship in 2016.
Wijnaldum remains unsettled in Paris but it is thought he would like a move to a London club if he leaves on loan, with Arsenal at the front of the queue.
The Gunners are keen, though are currently focusing on a striker signing.
Former Liverpool midfielder only moved to Paris last summer in a Bosman deal.
