Villarreal manager Unai Emery sis et to reject a return to the Premier League with Newcastle United.
Reports were rife that Newcastle and Villarreal had agreed on a compensation fee on the Spaniard but it is something that had been denied by the latter's president who said they were looking forward to working with their coach.
Spanish football expert Guillem Balague now claims that a deal wont happen between the two clubs with Emery expected to lead the club for another season.
"Emery felt a huge pressure on the day of their match against Young Boys. And then there was the lack of a clear vision from the club. If you want him, do you approach him in such a rushed way, without an official offer and with it coming out from the English side that it is all practically done?
"Also, the different number and style of the candidates being considered appear to be a sign of a confused vision. That was a concern to some of those involved in conversations with the club hierarchy. I don't see this move happening now this season. Maybe next year when the club's structure is clearer and the vision more defined," said Balague told FourFour Two.
If Newcastle fails to land Emery, they could turn to former AFC Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe as Steve Bruce's replacement.
