Deportivo Report Coloccini A Newcastle Player


Late news tonight on the Deportivo official web-site that target Fabricio Coloccini has indeed signed for Newcastle United.

Fabricio Deportive – Deportivo reports he’s signed for Newcastle

This is good news at last, and it seems that at least one of the clubs involved is saying that it’s now a completed deal and that Fabrico is a Newcastle player.

It’s not really official until our own Newcastle web site reports it, but we think he must have signed on the dotted line for the Spanish club to put the news out.

Fabricio becomes out 4th signing this summer for the Tyneside club, and the most expensive.

It looks we are paying around £10M for him, so we didn’t get him on the cheap, but hopefully he will play his part in the new Newcastle revolution under the maestro Kevin Keegan.

A statement on the Deportivo’s official website read as follows:

“The Argentina international is, starting from tonight (Wednesday), a Newcastle player,”

Coloccini will be the second central defender to join Newcastle this summer, with 22 year-old Frenchman Sebastien Bassong having already signed from Metz last week.

This is breaking news and obviously there should be more news on this tomorrow.

Comments welcome.

    Real Club Deportivo y Newcastle han sellado esta tarde el traspaso de Fabricio Coloccini al club inglés. Ambos clubes habían alcanzado un acuerdo verbal la pasada semana que hoy se firmó por escrito.

    Sky Sports news are saying Keegan has denied the club have completed the signing so will wait for it to be confirmed on nufc.co.uk first before believing anything!

    Oh my god he’s had his hair cut off!!!! this is disastrous news. As everyone knows every squad needs a player with really sh*t hair (See pic Ed has chosen so well), with his hideous curly locks I thought he was the sort of player we’ve been lacking since Venison and his mullet, but now? It should have been in his contract to keep the long hair!!!

    btw, looks like Rooney won’t be making an appearance for the opener. We’ll not be the only side down strikers.
