The 22-year-old is keen on leaving St James park in the January transfer window.
“I’m still in stand-by waiting for the club to make a decision,” he told Foot Mercato.
“We did everything to put the club that are interested in contact with Newcastle. But it seems that something is frozen on Newcastle’s part.
“They have the cards in their hands. It’s just about a good offer being made. The club is asking for too much money. All we can do is wait and see.
“The clubs that are interested in me remain the same, but it’s tough because they are asking for a ridiculous sum of money.
“Arsenal and Aston Villa are top teams in the English league, so I’d be happy to join them.
“I don’t have a priority. Both are good clubs, but I have a little preference for Aston Villa.
“They have been improving as a team in the last few years, which proves that they can do well.
“Aston Villa’s manager is a good coach according to my friends I think he could make me better.”
