The 31-year-old had been linked with a January move back to his native Argentina after reportedly telling the Magpies he has personal problems. San Lorenzo had also publicly declared their interest in the player.
However, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has today confirmed that his captain will remain on Tyneside for the foreseeable future.

French side Nancy have confirmed that a deal has been reached with Newcastle United for defender Massaido Haidara.
It's understood the 20-year-old is now travelling to Tyneside to undergo a medical and complete the transfer.
The Ligue 1 club announced the deal in a statement on their official website. It reads: "After 46 games in two-and-a-half-years under the jersey ASNL, Massadio Haidara is leaving his former club for Newcastle United, currently sixteenth in the Premier League."
The Magpies will also hope to complete the signing of Montpellier defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa this week.
Bordeaux are understood to have rejected a bid from Newcastle United for striker Yoan Gouffran.
French newspapers have reported that the Magpies made an offer of around 750,000 euros (£630,000) for the 26-year-old, which was turned down. It's believed the Ligue 1 side have put a price tag of one million euros on the France Under-21 international, who has six months remaining on his contract.
Gouffran, who joined Bordeaux from Caen in 2008, has scored 11 goals in 22 games this season.
France international defender Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa is expected to undergo a medical with Newcastle United on Monday.
It's understood the Magpies have agreed a £6.7 million fee with Ligue 1 side Montpellier for the 23-year-old, and the player is set to sign a four-year deal on Tyneside.
Yanga-Mbiwa will become the Alan Pardew's second January signing after his France teammate Mathieu Debuchy joined the club earlier this month.
Both Sunderland and Newcastle United have important Premier League games on Saturday. The Black Cats host West Ham at the Stadium of Light, while the Magpies travel to Carrow Road to face Norwich. Watch a preview of both games:
