It looks like Fabricio Coloccini has not played his last game for Newcastle – well not yet anyway. It seems that the meeting that was to take place today has now been delayed until Monday, according to the Evening Chronicle who quote Colo’s friends as the source of that information.
Fabricio Coloccini - meeting now on Monday
So we’re still not sure which way this thing will go, but San Lorenzo wanted a decision this week, or else they said they would move on to other plans. And it seems the rumors that he will leave this week have been denied bu the club – so that’s good.
It seems strange to us that Argentine club San Lorenzo want him to get out of his contract, so they can sign the player on a free transfer – but isn’t that what contracts are for – to keep the player at the club?
It’s clear that Pardew wants to keep the South American at least through the end of the season, and that would help us in our relegation battle, and also give us time in the summer to replace him with a top center-back.
But it’s all still up in the air – but at least Colo will be playing against Reading on Saturday – so that’s some good news.
We need some of that after what’s happened this month.
