Luca Digne (L) and Wissam Ben Yedder.

Newcastle United are no longer interested in Everton defender Luca Digne – according to The Daily Mail.

The left-back had been heavily been linked with a move to St James’s Park month.

The French left-back has fallen out of favour at Everton and could potentially leave the club this month.

Last week, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has poured cold water on any links with Digne to Newcastle.

And fresh reports today suggest the player’s wage demands are so high that Newcastle have backed away.

Digne is said to be asking for £200,000 a week and with a report stating that he is “no longer thought to be a target for the Magpies.”

Everton are reportedly demanding a fee of around £30million for the Frenchman, who has fallen out of favour with Toffees manager Rafa Benitez at Goodison Park after the Spaniard’s arrival this summer.
