We watched the interview with Fab Coloccini before yesterday’s game with Swansea, and the player comes over so well.
Fab Coloccini – captain in action yesterday
Not only that but he seems to love it on Tyneside, and we have to hope that means he will soon sign a new deal to stay on Tyneside.
And Alan Pardew has told the Sunday Sun today that there has been no breakdown in contract negotiations between Newcastle and Coloccini.
Teh 34 times capped Argentine defender has been offered a five-year contract to stay on Tyenside through the end of his career.
Fab turns 30 next month and the deal would see him be 34 when that contact ends, and it seems he is willing to stay at Newcastle with his friend and international colleague Jonas Gutierrez, who recently signed a new four year deal at the club.
The contracts these days have to be just right for both sides, and they tend to take a lot longer to negotiate than in the old days.
This is what Alan said about the negotiations:
“It’s bubbling along really,” “It’s a contract we need to get right and quite rightly.”
“And everyone is holding fire on that to make sure it’s right.” “There are obviously talks ongoing on that really.”
Coloccini talked of his pal Gutierrez and it was mentioned that Jonas had recently got a new dog, and he asked Colo whether he saw his pal that much now.
Colo said jokingly that he still sees Jonas, but that he treats that dog like a son. 😀
And it seems we can forget about Taye Taiwo coming to Newcastle on loan next month from AC Milan, as Alan says there are not truth in those reports:
“There’s no interest. I don’t know anything more about that.”
We hope that Fabricio will sing his contract as soon as possible and we also are expecting Danny Guthrie to sign a new deal on Tyneside.
Guthrie’s contract runs out next summer and he will be able to talk with other clubs in a couple of weeks time, as he will become a free agent in the summer, if he doesn’t sign a new deal at Newcastle.
