Negotiations with the French defender have dragged on just like Barton's did but Pearce said: 'We don't want to sell Sylvain. We want him to stay as he is an extremely good player. With Joey and Micah signing new deals and five new players coming in, hopefully that will push Sylvain in the right direction.
'We would like Sylvain to be part of what we are trying to build here.'
Distin signed for Newcastle from Paris St Germain in 2001 and played 35 matches for Newcastle before leaving because Manchester City offered him £5,000 a week more than Newcastle were prepared to pay.
But Sir Bobby Robson tried to sign him back more than once.
