The 23-year-old Gabon international has attracted interest from the Magpies after scoring eight goals in Ligue 1 this season and Aubameyang fuelled speculation about his future by declaring his desire to leave in the summer.

Newcastle have already raided French clubs to sign Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, Yoan Gouffran, Massadio Haidara and Moussa Sissoko in January, but St Etienne insist Aubameyang will not leave this month.

A club statement suggested that Newcastle were not the only side hunting Aubameyang's signature.

It read: "Following the rumours that have appeared in the media linking Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with a move to Newcastle, AS Saint-Etienne wish to make clear that the player, his agent and the club have collectively agreed to refuse all offers made thus far."

Aubameyang, has helped his team reach the final of the League Cup, where they will face Rennes at the Stade de France in April.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
