Freddie Woodman will not be joining Oxford United on loan, according to the Chronicle.
The League One club reportedly had an enquiry for the keeper knocked back as we weigh up what to do with the 21-year-old.
Rafa Benitez revealed at the weekend that he still has a decision to make over whether to loan out the keeper once again, with the England Under 21 international starting the season as fourth choice.
Our no.41 has begun the campaign in the Under 23s with Martin Dubravka, Karl Darlow and Rob Elliot all ahead of him in the pecking order in the senior side. He played the full 90 minutes as the development squad thrashed rivals Sunderland 5-0 last night.
Woodman has already had four loan spells in his short career and he could be set for a fifth, with a move to an EFL club or Scotland looking more likely than not before August 31st.
