Newcastle are set to miss out on landing a loan deal for Pape Souare after reports suggest Crystal Palace will send the full-back to Ligue 1.
The Magpies have been frustrated thus far on deadline day, with alternative deals also falling through.
Keen to offload the 28-year-old for the immediate future, The Guardian claim that the Eagles are not interested in sending the defender to a rival Premier League club.
Souare joined Palace in 2015, and has made 59 appearances during his time at Selhurst Park.
However, with a combined eight appearances in the last two seasons, the South Londoners are eager to see the left-back receive regular playing time.
Newcastle added Swiss centre-half Fabian Schär during the transfer window, but manager Rafael Benitez is seemingly wanting to add further defensive help before the start of the 2018-19 campaign.
