Newcastle United fans took to Twitter to ridicule the idea that they would sign David Luiz on loan this season.

The Shield Gazette reported on Tuesday that the Magpies were interested the defender, with Rafa Benitez keen on a reunion with the star.

Luiz has made 13 appearances across all competitions for Chelsea this season, but is currently sidelined with a knee injury.

However, it is understood that the defender has fallen out with manager Antonio Conte and that his first-team action will be limited when he returns.

While the star maybe out-of-favour, it wasn’t enough to convince Newcastle United fans that they would soon see him at St James’ Park.

One fan jokingly revealed they would sell magic beans to any one who believed the report, with another fan saying the news shows that it’s panto season.

The Magpies haven’t won any of their last nine league games, slumping to heavy defeats against Watford and Manchester United in the process.

The poor form has left Newcastle United 18th in the league, one point adrift of safety.

The Magpies are next in action on Saturday when they play West Ham at the London Stadium.
