Coloccini Could Be On His Way Out Of Newcastle


Rather surprising news today on the transfer front, is that Spanish club Seville are trying to sign Newcastle’s Argentine center-back Fabricio Coloccini.

Fabricio Coloccini – 7M price tag put on player

Spanish club Seville have put in a bid for the player but  it didn’t match the £7M price put on the player by the Tyneside club.

The news is being reported in the Sun, so we’re not sure just how accurate this news is, but usually once Newcastle put a price on a player, the first club to meet that price – and Newcastle will sell.

The Sun is reporting that Seville will go no higher than £5M for the player who cost over £10M from Deportivo three years ago, and has made 115 appearances for Newcatsle with 4 goals since then, and is a huge favorite with the Newcastle crowd.

So it would be a real surprise if Newcastle sell Coloccini this summer, since he was one of Newcastle’s best performers over the last two seasons.

Another point is that the Argentine is on a massive wage of over £65K/week on Tyneside, and many clubs would not be able to match that figure, even if they agreed a transfer fee with Newcastle.

But of course on the other side of the coin, that may be one reason Newcastle will be willing to unload Fabricio this summer, and get something for the player, whose contract runs out in two years,  and will not be renewed – at least not at the same wage level.

But a danger this summer is that Newcastle will change their squad too much, and surely they need to keep some of their proven performers, although if Newcastle are willing to sell their captain Kevin Nolan to a Championship club, then any player could presumably be shipped out this summer.

And the other possible outgoing transfer news today, on the Newcastle front, is that Bolton Wanderers are interested in Newcastle’s 20 year-old 6’2″ striker Nile Ranger.

Newcastle have put the London youngster on offer, and are said to want only about £1M for the England U20 International.

Blackpool have also been interested in the Highgate-born striker, who played 54 times for Newcastle with 3 goals, but failed to convince manager Alan Pardew over the last six months, that  he had a future on Tyneside.

The Newcastle transfer action continues to be hectic, with the club having signed free agents Demba Ba and Sylvain Marveaux yesterday and today respectively.

French U21 International Marvaux has been signed on a five year deal, and Senegal International striker Demba Ba has accepted a three year deal.

    You got the right picture this time! 😛

    1. Seville have no money to spend
    2. Ashley being the greedy sod that he is, wont sell a player for less then what he paid for them. We spent 10mill on colo, and knowing his greedy ways he wont ask for a penny less, then 10mill

    I can’t see Colo being allowed to leave frankly. Although he is one of the higher earners, his contribution to the team is too important. You can never say never under the current regime, but I think even MA must realise that Colo is too important to let go. Speculative journalism at the sun again.

    Won’t happen, him and his family are settled in the area.

    We should go for Johnson or Dann though. Real English tough centre backs who are far better than Williamson.

    Things are starting to look surprisingly good at the moment! If we just can keep the important players like Colo, Tiote, Jonas, Barton (give the lad a new deal!) and Enrique (convice him that we are a good team for him) we will have a good next season:)

    Cabaye, Ba and Marveaux is all higly rated players, and we all know what Ba can do in the PL! Good deals all I think, and the best of all just around 4-5 million for transfer fees for all three of them! Now I am just hoping that we can get a deal with Nzogbia and a other striker, and then I will be more than happy!

    I would be very surprised and upset if Colo were to go. Unlike Enrique, he’s never given any hint of wanting to leave, I think his family are happy here, he’s rated by the manager and he was arguably our best player last season – certainly in the top 3 without argument. As for Seville and an offer of £5 million – do me a favour! I rate Colo at least as highly as Jose – who would we get in as good for even £10 million? And don’t say you’re going to rely on Saylor / Willo combination – good guys, but also have their faults. And if one / both got injured?

    I think we are going to sign the following:

    Matuidi (sp)
    Bassong/Upson
    M Bangue (sp)
    Barnetta
    Erding
    Taylor

    If Jose stays he wont sign a new contract until the earliest January to see where we are in the league

    However if the Arsenal rumours are true then if they match our wage offer he is off

    sell him and expect us to be fighting relegation .. you don’t change a teams spine completely in one window .. complete madness .. I think this is just rumours though as Pardew should know what is stupidity in terms of team changes

    3 players for 4.8m , not bad business eh
    even though two of them have a dodgy track record in temrs of injury
    i reckon a big bid is gona be put in for a striker soon
    coz even if we get neil taylor and barnetta , we wouldnt have spent half of the 35m .. time will tell i guess

    Got to say that Cabaye was promised signings….

    We must look so appealing to anyone from France now: Cabaye, Ben Arfa, Marveux and Tiote and Ba also well known.
