Demel, who spent a season at Arsenal as a youngster, has performed well since switching to Hamburg from Borussia Dortmund in 2005.

Toon boss Kevin Keegan has been linked with several centre-backs this summer, but is yet to dig into his transfer warchest. Sources suggest that Manchester City and Portsmouth are also interested in the 26-year-old defender.

French-born Ivorian Demel is currently on international duty with Les Éléphants and insists that, while the Magpies link pleases him, he won’t enter into transfer talks just yet.

He Sky Sports: "I am thinking of Ivory Coast because 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, so we will wait and see."
