Premier League clubs have until 11pm to complete any final transfer deals and there are now a few players who don’t look like they’re going anywhere.

The St James’ Park side have followed through on some of the speculation to land the likes of Sven Botman and Alexander Isak - both of whom had long been touted as potential targets.

However, there have been considerably more names where moves haven’t materialised for one reason or another and many of those players now not only look like they won’t be moving to the North East but probably won’t be making any sort of move at all.

Here are five players who were linked with Newcastle United this summer who are likely to remain with their current clubs after the transfer window shuts at 11pm tonight:

Newcastle were first linked with Gordon in July with a surprise £35m move to St James Park touted.

Nothing came of the news with Everton likely holding out for considerably more money before Chelsea took over as the player’s most likely destination if he were to leave Goodison Park.

The Blues interest looked strong and a deal did seem possible for a while but Frank Lampard has now said that the “deadlines has passed” for them to sell the English striker.

Youri Tielemans - Leicester City

The Belgian has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Gunners, though Manchester United (33/1) are also thought to be interested.The Belgian has reportedly agreed personal terms with the Gunners, though Manchester United (33/1) are also thought to be interested.

The Belgian midfielder has seemingly been linked with almost half the clubs in the Premier League this summer including Manchester United, Arsenal and Liverpool.

Newcastle were also one of the sides thought to be interested in Tielemans and recent news that Leicester had set a £25m price tag on the player ahead of deadline day seemed like the touch paper to ignite a transfer battle.

However, with just one year left on his current deal at the King Power Stadium, it may be that he remains with the Foxes for now and leave for less money in January or on a free next summer.

The Magpies interest in the 24-year old seemed to cool as the window progressed though and Aston Villa soon became the front runners for his signature.

Crystal Palace, Everton and Leeds United were just some of the other clubs rumoured to be keen but it now looks increasingly likely that he’ll remain at Vicarage Road.

Newcastle’s reported interest in Sarr dated back to early in the summer but links to teammate Pedro emerged late last month.

Everton have now reportedly made a ‘last-gasp’ effort to bring in the Brazilian forward while Newcastle’s interes hasn’t totally disappeared from the headlines.

However, Watford are “standing firm” when it comes to the 20-year old and say neither he or Sarr will leave on Deadline Day.

As recently as today it has been said that as many as eight Premier League teams are interested in the Chelsea midfielder and Newcastle are likely to be one of them.

The Magpies reportedly enquired about the player early last month and that interest may not have totally discapted but Crystal Palace and Aston Villa are thought to be more likely destinations.

Everton, Leicester City and West Ham are other clubs who are thought to be keen but the current likelihood is that he will remain a Chelsea player after the deadline has passed.
