Newcastle were linked yesterday with an interest for Juan Cala of Sevilla whose contract runs out in June, and the player has not agreed a new deal with his home town club.
Juan Cala – Newcastle have lost interest – at least in January
And there’s news in the Chronicle today that the Tyneside club have ruled out any bid for the Spanish defender, even though there have been recent reports in Spain about Newcastle’s interest in the player.
The Chronicle report specifically says Newcastle have ruled out interest in the January transfer window, but if this lad does become a free agent in the summer, we suppose Newcastle could still try to bring him to Newcastle on a free transfer at that time.
And with Coloccini probably wanting to leave the club this summer, to return home to Buenos Aries to be with his family, Newcastle could be after one or even two central defenders come the summer.
That’s why it will be important to keep Steven Taylor on Tyneside, and the form of Mike Williamson may also allow Newcastle to let their captain return home in the summer.
Fabricio signed an extension to his contract almost two years ago, and that was to keep the Argentine on Tyneside through the summer of 2016, but that seems unlikely to happen now.
