On Wednesday, it was reported that the Magpies had tabled a £22.5 million bid for Digne, with Sean Longstaff offered to Everton in the deal.

However, it's emerged that Digne is not interested in moving to Tyneside and according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, there is "no way" a deal happens.


Magpies star Saint-Maximin, always active on social media, felt the needed to double-check with the Italian journalist.


Digne is also courting interest from other Premier League sides. Chelsea, having seen Ben Chilwell ruled out for the season, are said to be keen on the former Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain man to strengthen their options on the left side of defence.

The 28-year-old has not played for Everton since December 1 and was frozen out after an argument with Benitez over tactics.

He was an unused substitute for Everton's last game, where they were beaten 3-2 by Brighton at home.

Benitez has confirmed Digne has asked to leave he Toffees.

Speaking in his press conference, Benitez said: “We have some conversations. He told me what he thought. So what do you expect the manager to do when a player is thinking about leaving?

"We need commitment. We don’t need enquiries. I am not in charge of the negotiations but when someone is asking, they have to commit themselves and say ‘I will buy’.”
