The news comes after the news that David Moyes is ready to give up his interest in West Ham defender
David Moyes likes Tarkovsky, but Newcastle are now considering other options, according to the report.
The news came after Magpies owner Eddie Howe insisted the club could not spend bucketloads as a result of financial fair play rules this summer, with squad overhaul being “not an option.”
Sports Mail Last month it was reported that a transfer budget of-60-80 million plus player sales has been mooted within the game.
Howe said: ‘With financial fair play, we have the restraint and we have the things we need to work on inside, so we can’t go out and spend money on players that teams might have done in the past, and not change completely. Team within a transfer window. That is not an option for us.

‘The more money you spend on a window, the more it affects your ability to spend outside of Windows.
“There are rules to running the game well and we have to follow it, which affects what we can do this summer.
“But that doesn’t mean we’re completely ambitious. We are well aware that we need to change teams and improve, but it will be difficult to strike a balance.
