Coloccini in talks to leave Newcastle United

Coloccini - Set to move back to Spain

It might be music to some Toon fans ears, or maybe all but Fabricio Coloccini is set for a move away from Newcastle. The Argie arrived from Deportivo for a staggering fee of £10.3m in the summer when Kevin Keegan was at the helm but with turmoil on and off the pitch Coloccini couldn’t handle English top flight football and suffered, badly. There is no doubt that Coloccini is a very good defender in his own right but in fairness to him, the nonsense on and off the pitch was enough to wreck his first Premier League season.

Coloccini’s agent said :

“Fabricio is disappointed with Newcastle’s relegation and he wants to play more regularly,”

“We are studying several options, all in Europe.

“The boy does not wish to return to Argentina, even if some enquiries have been made.”

Not much said but enough for us to get the idea, Colo is on his way elsewhere. The question is, how much will he go for?

Comments appreciated 🙂

When he eventually got here after NO pre-season he looked a quality player in the first 3 or so games. then. Keegan left houghton in charge the club was for sale, no it was'nt Kinnear the clown in, then he almost snuffs it the houghton again then its Shearer then were back up for sale. No wonder half the team were lost on the pitch. How would we be if our place of work was in such disarray.
