Aston Villa are seeking to shed some wages with Darren Bent, Shay Given, Stephen Ireland and Alan Hutton all heading for the exit.
United want Bent - but not at the £8m asking price - but Ireland will NOT be coming back to Tyneside.
Villa have offered him to Newcastle, but Kinnear has told them "thanks - but no thanks!"
Ireland was injured when he arrived on his loan spell, made an arse of himself in the Toon one evening when he stripped off to "impress the girls", and was injured when he returned to Villa Park.
But Pardew defended the player saying "he wasn't given a chance here, but I'd welcome him back".
WE TELL IT AS IT IS - NO BULLSHIT!

Only 5% Wanted Pardew - What's The Percentage Now? PLEASE VOTE
Mike Ashley stunned us all ... and I mean ALL ... when he sacked Chris Hughton and brought in Alan Pardew.
Apparently, Ashley knows Pardew from a London casino the pair used to visit, and the former West Ham boss talked his way into the job.
At the time the appointment was made, ourselves (NU-MAD) and the Chronicle held a poll to ask the Newcastle fans if they were happy with the new manager.
Both polls showed only 5% of Toon fans were happy, and if the truth was known, I'd say 3% of those were Mackems gatecrashing the voting!
So ... with Pardew two and half years into the job ... has he turned the voting around? Has he won you over?
We were still in the relegation dog-fight until Swansea won at Wigan a week before the season ended, and there was growing concern after heavy home defeats to Sunderland and Liverpool.
Pardew gave his excuses, saying his squad was "wafer thin and too small to tackle a long season".
Yet on Thursday - having lost Steve Harper, Danny Simpson, James Perch and Dan Gosling on the way to Crystal Palace (FOUR PLAYERS LESS) he said: "I'm not too concerned because we have a big squad".
Confused? We certainly were.
So click the button - PLEASE VOTE.
Is he the man for the job ... or not?
