We are hearing from our readers in Spain, that an agreement between Newcastle United and Deportivo for defender Coloccini, is being reported tonight by Radio Cadena Ser.
Fabricio Coloccini – agreement reported reached between clubs
The radio report says that the two clubs have finally reached agreement on the player.
The deal is said to be for 11M euro (Â£8.8M), plus an incentive of 1M euro (Â£0.8M) by the player meeting certain objectives at the Tyneside club. This looks very like the Newcastle offer that was made.
His agent Marcelo Lombillo, said:
“It’s an agreement between the clubs and only remaining are the details of the contract,”
Coloccini is reported to be ready to travel to Newcastle on Monday, to undergo a medical and to discuss personal terms, and if everything is OK the player is expected to sign for Newcastle.
This is what RadioÂ Cadena Ser is reporting – so we know that part is true.
This is obviously not official, and we will have to wait to see if the Newcastle club issue any announcement tomorrow, about an agreement between the clubs indeed being reached.
But most Newcastle fans need a lift after tonight’s performance, so let’s hope the radio report is factual, although our own record on this site on these things has not been too good, to be truthful.
But we do know that Kevin has said he hopes to announce a player signing within 24 hours, so we hope it’s Fabricio, but you never know.
We do know that Deportivoâ€™s President Lendoiro had decided to travel to Venezuela tomorrow, and if a deal wasn’t reached before he left on Saturday morning, it would be delayed, presumably until he returned to Spain.
Wishing and Hoping – especially after tonight’s very disappointing 1-0 defeat against Hertha Berlin.
