Roma are interested in signing the Dutchman, who is in the final year of his contract

The decision to retain Blind comes amid the absence of Ivory Coast worldwide Eric Bailly, who has not played since November after undergoing ankle surgery, while Axel Tuanzebe has moved to Aston Villa on a six-month deal.

The Dutchman has dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford, making just three starts in the Premier League under Jose Mourinho this season. The Italian club want Blind to fill the void initially on loan, with an option to buy in the summer.

Italian giants Roma were said to be looking at Blind to replace Emerson Palmieri, who moved to Chelsea on Tuesday, but they have baulked at United's £13million asking price for the Holland global.

Danny Blind has indicated that Manchester United's insistence on not selling Daley Blind in January has negated his chances of moving to Roma.

However, Danny Blind has insisted that his son will not be joining Roma in this window.

Newcastle, meanwhile, now sit 15th in the Premier League and just a point above the relegation places. But they look set to miss out to survival rivals West Brom .

It is not the first time Blind has been linked with a move away in recent months, after Marca reported that Barcelona were keen on the Dutchman in December.

The Daily Mirror independently reports that United want to receive a similar fee to the £13/14m they paid Ajax in 2014.

"It's really hard because Man Utd wants to keep him, play in the Champions League, the Premier League, the FA Cup and can play in different competitions, the group is very united and they want it to stay".

"Mourinho wants to keep him in the group. Maybe if we had a few days, a week perhaps [a deal would be possible], but we've only got a few hours, so it's really very hard".
