Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew says the club has not yet reached an agreement with either FC Twente or Lille for their transfer targets.

The Magpies are keen on Twente defender Douglas and Lille right-back Debuchy but Pardew has made it clear that they are no closer today than they were last week for both players.

"There's no real progress," Pardew told The Chronicle.

"The two clubs need to make an agreement on the finance side about the players we're talking about.

"Unfortunately, there's no agreement at the moment."
