A deal for Carlos has been on the agenda at St James’s Park for the majority of the January transfer window with the Magpies reportedly submitting two bids for the Brazilian.

Furthermore, it emerged on Tuesday that Carlos had requested to leave Sevilla, however, the defender did feature during Sevilla’s 1-1 draw with Valencia last night.

With progress on a deal that would see Carlos join the set-up at Newcastle seemingly slowing, The Athletic’s David Ornstein is reporting that another Premier League side have submitted a ‘major offer’ for the 28-year-old.

This club is believed to be situated in London, however, Ornstein ruled-out the possibility that it was Arsenal.

Despite the Magpies reportedly submitting an ‘astonishing’ contract offer for the defender, their precarious position at the wrong-end of the Premier League table, a move to another English side may be more appealing in the short-term.
