Dijon have confirmed Newcastle United have had a bid for Benjamin Corgnet turned down.

Dijon now claim they have rejected a bid from the North East club and are not looking to sell him during the January transfer window.

Asked by RMC if Corgnet was certain to stay, coach Patrice Carteron replied: "It is.

"We had a direct approach from Newcastle, but Benjamin is of the same approach as us and wants to continue to grow and play the full season in Ligue 1.

"At the end of the season, he would be allowed to leave - Newcastle's offer was very high."
