Coloccini Offered Five Year Deal On Improved Terms

There is some very good news being reported this morning in the Sunday Sun about Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini.

Fabricio Coloccini – hugely popular on Tyneside

And it’s that the club have offered Colo a five year deal at huge wages to keep him on Tyneside for the rest of his career.

The sublime player turns 30 in January and if he accepts the offer he will be 35 when the new contract runs out, and it seems a case of Newcastle trying to sign their important players to  long deals to try to get some much needed stability at the club.

Of course when you talk about big wages, Colo is already on high wages, and we’d be surprised if the club can afford to offer him those wages on what would be a three year extension to his current deal which runs out in June of 2013.

But that’s what’s being reported today by Mark Douglas.

Coloccini is not only hugely popular with the Newcastle fans and playing the best football of his career, and now the Newcastle captain, but he is also very popular in the boardroom, and is a first class professionalism and a role model to other players, especially the many top youngsters at the club.

The Sunday Sun is reporting that the offer is made up of four years at wages just above his current rate of around £55K/week and an optional final year on slightly reduced terms.

So if that is true, the many reports that Coloccini s on around £75K/week at Newcastle just cannot be true.

That also means Colo will be getting an increase in wages immediately, however small, and if that’s true,  there has to be an excellent chance that the Argentine will sign up, as did his friend and International colleague Jonas Gutierrez recently.

It’s hardly surprising that Newcastle want to get the deal tied up as soon as possible, as the very last thing we want is for there to be any chance at all that Colo could leave Newcastle.

It would be terrific if we hear news very shortly that Colo is willing to stay on Tyneside, and help guide the Newcastle club to some success in the near future.

Fabricio Coloccini is the new face of Newcastle United, and he is a great representative of the new Newcastle.

    He is our BEST Player I do not resent him getting a contract as he gives 100% and more every game he plays !!! Unlike the likes of Smith who should just clear of !!!! New Players Will Sign For Newcastle Now Because of Coloccini and Cabaye etc as they know we have a quality squad !!!!

    Colo is by far one of my fave players at the club but realistically i cant see him being offered a 5 year contract as he is nearly 30. I would absolutely love it if we did but im unsure after all wasnt that the reason why we got rid of nolan etc?

    Would be fantastic tbh, he’s part of the spine in our great team, He’s the corner piece of the puzzle wich makes it impossible to build something without.
    Sign him up, let him finish his career with us.
    Imo, our best player currently.

    If we wanted the slowest midfield in the prem, we would keep Nolan for 5 years. Collo is a defender, his reading of the game comes above his pace.
    It’s quite different to keep a medium working slow midfield, than keeping a hard working slightly faster defender.
    And he’s probs one of the most technical defenders in the league. Nolan had a great shot and a decent pass, that was about it.
    Ofc he was a good captain, i’ll never forget that, but still have that with Collo. He leads by example.

    davybtoon; do you think he is better than Woodgate?

    Woodgate was the best centre half I have ever seen, shame about his injuries!

    I cant believe Argentina aren’t calling Collo up, but their loss is our gain!

    nickybutttt, your maths maybe OK. But you should learn to read.

    “The Sunday Sun is reporting that the offer is made up of four years at wages just above his current rate of around £55K/week and an optional final year on slightly reduced terms.”

    Benton Toon Exile, agree Woodgate was the best centre half I have seen at st. james park. Collo is a great GH but he is flawed, turned his back twice this season. His biggest tests will be this month when he plays against the best strikes in the world, dont want to be a doom merchant but its going to be tough.
    Now Woodgate against Chelsea, I will never forget that performance absolutely immense!!

    cestriasteve; Pardew rejected woodgate on a pay per play basis before he went to Stoke, although he is about finished!

    If Kenny Dalglish still has a job in January he is sniffing around either Collo or Taylor! £35m anyone!!!!

    Have to agree based on what I’ve seen recently in his attitude at marshalling the defence, and his work rate, both of which were sublime yesterday.

    STaylor could learn from him. Williamson too.

    Give him the cash and perhaps it’s a positive signal to come from the Newcastle hierarchy to reward the above – attitude, ability and consistent performance.

    HWTL, next two games are the REAL test though.

    £35m – we mugged Liverpool quite honestly – see Carrol’s sitter yesterday? I know at the time we were all in uproar at the decision and also the fact there were clearly no plans, despite management claims, to replace him – this is now good business from Ashley.

    Perhaps at time of purchase Ashley was a naive club owner – less to now?

    Collo would walk into any Prem club defence, without problem. I would much sooner have him in ours, thanks very much!! Get him signed up asap!!

    Benton, I heard some very bad stories about Woodgate. Very sad from a player who was so committed to getting to the top he was even learning Spainish before he went to Real Madrid !! still glad I was able to see him at the top of his game, sublime player and as cool as a cucumber, would never get caught out like Steven Taylor and defend with his wrong leg like he did against Spurs.

    It will be interesting to see if we make another CH signing in Jan. as I dont think whoever it is will be first choice.

    In my opinion we need another full back, Petiers is the man. And when Stanton sorted out his boots at half time at Blackburn I thought he looked the part and surely he will get a start soon.

    Benton…aye I reckon colo is better than woodgate. I thought woodgate was mint for us but there’s no way he could effect each game so much, every week, the way colo does, if you get to the games just watch him, he’s the boss on field, and there’s never a time where that defensive line is out, great captain, superb defender…vidic? Pfft colo every time, one of the best I’ve seen in the black n White. SIGN HIM UP!!

    It’s important that your captain leads by example, and that’s what Coloccini does. I rhink it would be great both for the club and the player if he stays here for the rest of his career.

    Funny to read, but I also think that woodgate is the best defender in a toon shirt I have seen since supporting Newcastle (about 15 years now).
    I think colo has been absolutely brilliant this season and that we should extend his contract ASAP!

    i would go for 3 yrs contract then extend year by year. 5 years is too much especially on high wages

    he might do an Alan Smith during his 4th and 5th year.
