West Brom pulled out of talks to sign Gibbs last month after having a £10m bid rejected, while Newcastle have also been credited with an interest in the 27-year-old.

Gibbs lost his first-team place to Nacho Monreal last season when he made just eight Premier League starts and, having missed the pre-season tour to the Far East, has yet to feature this season.
