Lille president Olivier Letang has revealed that despite great Newcastle United interest, the Ligue 1 side will not sell Sven Botman this window.

"We had a run in the Champions League and we managed to finish first in our group. We have big objectives for the end of the season so Sven will stay with us until the end of the season to help us achieve these objectives.”
With Botman unlikely, Diego Carlos is the man Newcastle have seemingly turned to and hopes remain that a deal can be agreed soon.
