The France international midfielder, 23, who has previously been linked with Arsenal said he was unaware of a potential transfer to St James’ Park.
“I don’t know much about it. I read the press and I saw my name written next to Newcastle but I don’t have more information than this,” Grenier told Foot Mercato.
He added: “The transfer window closes on Friday so we’ll see, but I’ve still got lots of objectives I want to achieve personally and collectively with Lyon.
“In my head I’m not thinking about the transfer window and transfer rumours.
“In football things go very quickly, we don’t have our destiny in our own hands.”
Cayabe completed a £19m move to PSG on Wednesday. Newcastle have until tomorrow’s 11pm transfer deadline to sign a replacement.
