Sport Invest spokesman Eliot Vantil told BBC Sport: “David would love to play for Newcastle. He knows manager Sam Allardyce was also a centre-back and believes he can learn from him.”
He added: “Allardyce was keen to sign David back in January for Bolton and I know he came to watch him play against Wales.
“David has played for one great club, PSG, but would love to come to the Premiership and play for another.
“PSG are holding out for the right offer for their player.”
