Demel signed for Hamburg from Borussia Dortmund in 2005 and impressed for the Bundesliga club last season.

Newcastle are reportedly tracking the centre-back, who is currently on international duty with Ivory Coast, while Manchester City and Portsmouth are also rumoured to be interested.

Demel, a former Arsenal trainee, is keen to put talk of an exit on hold, but admits he is pleased by the rumours linking him with The Magpies.

He told skysports.com: "I am thinking of Ivory Coast. We are not playing as we should be.

"My transfer will be talked about soon. The Premier League is a top league.

"It is good to be linked with famous teams such as Newcastle. We will wait and see."
