Newcastle To Enter Negotiations To Extend Coloccini’s Contract


News today that Fabricio Coloccini and his advisors will enter into contract talks wioth the Newcastle club in the next couple of weeks.

Fabricio Coloccini – entering contract talks at Newcastle

And we have to think that with his Argentine pal, Jonas Gutierrez, signed up now through the summer of 2015, and with the 29 year-old being handed the Newcastle captaincy last July by Alan Pardew, the Argentine International will be anxious to get a new deal signed.

Of course Newcastle do not have a great track record in signing up top players this year, and they failed to reach agreement with former captain Kevin Nolan and Joey Barton, and both have since left the club.

And the problem with Fabricio, who is a folk hero on Tyneside, is that he’s the highest paid player at the club, with wages anywhere between £75K/week and £90K/week, and he also turns 30 in January.

But we have a feeling that Fabricio will be different to Kevin and Joey, and we could all be in for a little bit of a surprise, because we think the talks will be completed fairly quickly.

One reason for that is that Jonas was well paid,  and he managed to reach an agreement for a two year extension, presumably with little trouble, and that alone must bode well for Fabricio’s situation.

We know Fab just loves life at Newcastle and if he does sign an extension it would be very well received by the Newcastle faithful, and we have to think he’s keen to sign a new deal to stay at the club.

And of course we’ll not even mention that Newcastle seem to be putting together a very decent side that can only get better as both the new players and the youngsters gel together in the squad.

We love players who love the Newcastle club, and certainly Jonas and Fabricio have always talked in lyrical terms about Newcastle United, the City itself, and the fans.

This is what Jonas said of Coloccini today, and you have to think they’ve both talked about staying together on Tyneside:

“I know Colo  very well of course and he thinks the same, he was so proud to be made captain and in my view, I think he is playing the best football of his career – we both have a lot to thank the manager and board for.”

We have a good feeling that Fabricio will announce that he has agreed a two year extension to stay at the club, and that will come sooner rather than later.

We certainly hope that’s the case, because Colo has earned a new deal at Newcastle, and he can become the face of this new Newcastle side.

Comments welcome.

    Is there some kind of bonus scheme if you get first or something? Do you get £100 in the post for each one?

    I really don’t see the attraction of doing it lol!

    As for this, I’ll be absolutely chuffed if we tie colo down for longer, best CB we’ve had at the club for donkeys years.

    Good news just keeps coming this season!

    i would say in the last 15 years or so only one that was as good (when fit) was woodgate sure it prompted the biggest club in world football to sign him.

    Just watched the highlights of last night Santon looked very good, Ronaldo style stepovers shot that just went wide. Beardo said afterwards Santon was the best out there, he never gives the ball away and is both footed which is great and even in tight situations he always manages to riggle away and off he goes.

    If this is true I can’t believe that Ashley is starting to get things right for a change.
    A fantastic move for Colo and the fans.
    Incidentally have to agree with Boom Boom – Albert was good but nowhere near the class of Colo.
    However, Colo hasn’t sensationally chipped the Manure goalie just yet!!

    That 5-0 game goes down as the greatest game of my toon supporting life.i has to go round a mates house who had sky ( I live in the midlands) and it was hands down the greatest I have ever seen.

    Anyone used to get those VHS “black and White” videos? I used to get them al, the time had the one with that game on. Still got it!

    i have to agree i would like a true geordie to own the club and run it in the model its in as i like that our club has earned its current status not like Citeh or Chelski i have no respect for them or L’fool anymore i think this ones definately a ‘better the devil you know’ if we are on target for europe i wudnt think ashley would be dumb enough to gamble aginst that amount of money by selling off a key player in jan so i am actually fully contented as he is proving to be more hands off and we are running better than we have for a long time (i still dont like him as a person) lol

    Wonderful news if and when he signs, then go out and buy Pieters, Martin and a centra defender and we are set.
    We do not need a striker we can play 4-6-0 or 4-5-1 or 4-3-3 or occasionally 4-4-2-
    Would love to see us play 4-6-0 like Barca.

    for me the best CB I have seen play for the toon would have to be Woodgate, although I know he had his injury problems but when he played he was pure class and composure

    @ Ameobi – Yeah, I agree mate.

    We need that to keep improving and every now and then you need that bigger player to come in to make players still have to fight for their position etc.

    But, looking at our squad now, if they all stay fit, we are capable of at least pushing for Europe and it’s not cost us that much with the new additions.

    It will be tough but you can get by with spending only £10-£15 million on signings a season and keep improving.

    We need a bit more depth in some places but it’s so tough to keep a big, quality squad happy.

    If we sign 2-3 more players that can be bench players/impact players, we’ll be laughing.

    Trouble is finding the players good enough to do that and happy enough to do that for us.

    Another pleasing thing for me – though it’s early days – but most / all of the players – new and old – that we have seem to be “solid citizens” – grounded, decent and good team men The one exception (Ranger) – and Pardew is on his case. We’ve bought some trouble in the past – Dyer, Bramble, Bowyer, Barton etc. – and even Saint Bobby struggled with some of them. Colo is to me getting to be close to a hero (unlike Barton – don’t get where some people were coming from with that) – and I know he’ likes it here as do his family, so fingers crossed!
