Atletico Madrid winger Jose Antonio Reyes has refused to confirm reports that he has turned down a move to Newcastle United in favour of a switch to Monaco.
Reyes has been linked with a summer move away from Atletico despite only signing at Vicente Calderon from Arsenal last July.
Newcastle were believed to be lining up an offer for the 24-year-old, and reports emanating from Spain have suggested Reyes has rejected personal terms.
It is claimed he is now in advanced talks with Ligue 1 club Monaco after Atletico accepted a bid worth €7million (£5.5million).
Reyes said: "I am calm. My agent is dealing with the matter."
