Newcastle United still have a chance of prising Ivica Dragutinovic away from Sevilla.

The experienced Serb admits he's close to signing a new contract extension with Sevilla, but last night left the door open to a move to Newcastle this week.

"On Thursday or Friday we are going to make a final decision," said Dragutinovic. "There's still things to consider, but the final decision won't be over money."
