He said: "It is a team that has a new manager and is doing well". "If I am waiting for players to come, and it is very hard to bring the players that you want, then you can not sell the players that are already playing and - more or less - doing well".

Newcastle had created a series of first-half chances, but they couldn't find a way past Lukasz Fabianski. "We are not thinking of selling players that are playing already". Players who are not playing and everybody knows about, maybe they would be available.

"It is not a question of needing to sell to buy".

However, it is worthy of note that all these areas that Iranians are complaining about are outside the scope of the nuclear deal. The pact is underpinned on the USA side by a presidential waiver of nuclear-related sanctions on Iran's central bank.

"But we do not want to sell anyone who will add value to the team and we can not loan players if we do not have options to replace them". My belief is that we will do what we have to do. "We will try to do our best until the last day and believe we will do what we have to do".
