Sevilla chief Monchi has announced Diego Carlos will not be sold to Newcastle United.
Monchi says Newcastle have made an attractive offer, but Carlos will not be moving to England before next week’s transfer deadline.
He told BBC Sport: “The Newcastle offer has been a good offer, a respectable offer, I have to say that. But the offer, our board, our management team, felt that it wasn’t enough.
“It is true that maybe it wasn’t the right time, it is a difficult market to find a replacement for a player like Diego Carlos and it is a market which takes place over a very short period of time – so maybe if that offer came along or will come along in the summer, well things will have changed.
“The offer was a very good offer, very respectable, not at the best possible time and Diego Carlos, well I was talking to him this morning and he is happy, because at the end of the day he is staying here at his club, a club that really wanted him. If he was angry then maybe he would have changed his opinion but no, he seems quite happy.”
