Antonio Conte is not interested in becoming the next manager of Newcastle United, the UK Sun reports.
The Italian has been linked with the Premier League since, following its takeover by new owners backed by a Saudi Arabian consortium.
Current Magpies boss, Steve Bruce, is expected to be sacked as a new era begins at St James Park.
Conte is out of work after leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season.
However, he is not keen on the Newcastle job, as he wants to manage a side that has a chance of immediate success.
The Tyneside club are currently facing the threat of relegation as they are 19th in the table.
It is expected the new ownership will aid a splurge in the transfer market.
Conte would have untold resources at his disposal, but would realistically need time to build his squad before being in a position to land silverware.
