Jack Colback could end up staying at Newcastle United.
A proposed move to Wolverhampton Wanderers has broken down, according to reports in the Midlands.
The Championship club had been keen to sign the midfielder on loan as a replacement for Dave Edwards, who joined Reading this week.
Colback is not in Rafa Benitez's plans at Newcastle and unlikely to be named in the club's 25-man Premier League squad.
The 27-year-old must move before tonight's 11pm deadline to be sure of playing competitive football between now and the January transfer window.
Colback was today linked with a loan return to former club Sunderland by The Sun.
The midfielder is also interesting Hull City.
Colback, signed as a free agent in 2014, has two years left on his United deal.
Defender Grant Hanley, meanwhile, has signed for Norwich City.
