Chelsea midfielder no longer on Newcastle’s radar

Chelsea midfielder Jorginho is no longer on the radar of Newcastle United, according to The Telegraph.

The Italian is about to enter the final six months of his contract with the Blues and talks over an extension have stalled.

The midfielder is eyeing £150,000-a-week to pen a renewal, but the Blues don’t want to improve his current wages (£110,000-a-week).

As a result, Jorginho is looking for a way out of the club, but it has now been confirmed that the Magpies won’t be making an approach.

It was recently claimed that Newcastle could swoop for Jorginho in January, but that appears false as he does not suit their tactical system.

Eddie Howe wants more mobile midfielders in his squad. Jorginho is unlikely to get any quicker during the back end of his playing career.

On top of this, his current salary demands have also put off the Magpies, who are reluctant to hand huge salaries to short-term signings.
