Paris Saint-Germain head coach Thomas Tuchel has quashed rumours linking Edinson Cavani with a move away from the Parc des Princes.


Cavani was keen to leave the Ligue 1 champions because of the lack of regular first-team football since the arrival of Mauro Icardi.


However, the PSG boss said the Uruguay international, who was linked with moves to various clubs across Europe including Atletico Madrid, Manchester United and Chelsea, will not be sold on deadline day.


Danny Rose initiated Newcastle move.


"There are worse situations in life than staying at PSG," Tuchel said as ESPN quoted. "I think he will feel good.


"He must regain the confidence and the rhythm. Edi is here, he's a great player. We won't change this group and that's good."


Cavani, who handed in a transfer request weeks ago, is out of contract at the end of the season.


Matic is keen to stay at Man Utd beyond the summer.
