Diego Carlos speaks out on Newcastle transfer links as London club enters the fray

Diego Carlos speaks out on Newcastle transfer links as London club enters the fray

Diego Carlos has spoken out on his future amid Newcastle interest, as a rival Premier League club have matched the Magpies’ offer for the centre-back.

There have been plenty of conflicting reports about Newcastle’s pursuit of Sevilla centre-back Diego Carlos in recent weeks.

Those in the English media appear to believe that a deal is edging closer, with multiple bids reported of over 30 million pounds.

However, other sources suggest that Sevilla have rejected such bids, and that while talks are ongoing, the sum which Newcastle are offering is not enough.

And, as Chelsea found out with Jules Kounde in the summer, Sevilla aren’t likely to budge.

But now, has the final nail in the coffin been hammered home by Carlos himself?

Carlos speaks out

Speaking to the Spanish media on Wednesday, Carlos was quizzed on his links to Newcastle, and provided what seemed to be a definitive answer, to suggest that he will be staying in Seville.

As per local news outlet Diario de Sevilla, the Brazilian claimed ‘I have a lot of time left here [in Seville]’ when asked about a potential transfer away from Southern Spain.

With Sevilla currently in second place in La Liga, and four points off top side Real Madrid, any move to relegation-threatened Newcastle would be surprising to say the least were it to occur, even if the money was significant.

And now, the Magpies’ chase for his signature seems to have ended.

A London side join the fray

As per The Athletic, another Premier League side have made an offer for Carlos, too, although, based on the defender’s recent comments it is unclear as to whether it could be accepted.

The bid is thought to have come from a London club, although Arsenal are ruled out.

West Ham and Tottenham are both in need of defensive additions, while Chelsea made a play for Jules Kounde in the summer, and could be preparing for the departures of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, both of whom are out of contract in the summer.
