Managala had been linked with a loan move to Newcastle United before tomorrow's transfer deadline.

The centre-half, who cost £32million when he signed from Porto in 2014, has made 15 appearances for City this season.

Meanwhile, Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is still hopeful that the club can sign a striker before the transfer window closes tomorrow night at 11pm.
