Jack Colback has been offered to Sunderland and Middlesbrough – as he wants to stay in the North East.
Colback is not in Rafa Benitez's plans at Newcastle United.
The Gazette reported earlier this month that the midfielder was set to be left out of the club's 25-man Premier League squad.
And The Times today report that Colback, keen to stay in the region, has been offered to former club Sunderland as well as Middlesbrough.
A proposed loan move to Wolverhampton Wanderers broke down last night.
It has also been reported that Colback will be sent to train at Newcastle's Academy if he doesn't leave before tonight's 11pm deadline.
The 27-year-old, signed as a free agent in 2014, has two years left on his United deal.
