Sky understands that reports claiming Demba Ba has left Newcastle and signed for Galatasaray are wide of the mark.
Italian media reported on Thursday that the Senegal international was on his way out of St James' Park.
Speculation suggested that a deal had been agreed with Turkish outfit Galatasaray.
It is common knowledge that Ba has a clause in his contract that can be activated up until 31st July.
Interested parties can trigger that clause by matching a pre-determined transfer fee.
Ba has offered little indication as to where he sees his future, leaving Newcastle sweating on his continued involvement on Tyneside.
The Magpies have, however, dismissed rumours that have suggested a deal has been done with Galatasaray and insist that the striker, who netted 16 times during his debut season for the club in 2011/12, is not for sale.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew, when asked about the rumours during BBC Sport's Euro 2012 coverage, said he had "no idea" if there was any truth in the reports.
"Demba and Cisse were brilliant for us last year, and we hope for the same next season," he said.
