We are getting reports from Spain that say Fabricio Coloccini is expected to sign for Newcastle United shortly.
Fabricio Coloccini – signing for Newcastle today?
There were reports earlier today that his agent had said Newcastle had bid around 10M euro (Â£8M) for the player, and that the only offer on the table was from Newcastle United.
Coloccini was also withdrawn from the club’s trip to Venezuela for a pre-season camp.
However, the new news seems to be that Deportivo have now accepted the bid from the Newcastle club, so there will presumably now be ongoing negotiations with the player on his personalÂ terms.
It’s important the club move very quickly before other clubs can move in – but so far so good, although with our experiences this summer, it will not be official until the club announces this on their official web site at www.nufc.co.uk .
But this breaking news has to be so far so good for Newcastle fans – let’s hope we can wrap this deal up today – and sign him quickly.
