Newcastle have been linked with a late move for £8million rated Leeds United midfielder Alex Mowatt.
But Steve McClaren may have to wait until January to get his man, report the Mirror.
Elland Road owner Massimo Cellino is reported to be unwilling to sell and the interest may have to be revived in January.
Mowatt, 20, scored nine Championship goals from central midfield last season.
Leeds have stamped an £8million valuation on his head.
