Jack Colback is said to be surplus to requirements at Newcastle and the former 27 year-old Sunderland midfielder is available for transfer.
We signed Jack from Sunderland three years ago as a free agent and it now seems like his former manager Steve Bruce, who is now at Aston Villa wants to sign him.
Steve is reported in HITC to want to pay £5.2M for the local Newcastle lad and that would seem like an excellent buy for Villa as they try to get back to the Premier League in the coming season.
Jack Colback – Newcastle’s central midfielder – for sale
Bruce is trying to strengthen the Villa side this summer and Jack would be a good addition to their central midfield, especially after Jack has just had a full season in England’s second division with the Magpies appearing 26 times in the league and 34 times in total.
Jack also has good Premier League experience having played 179 PL games for Sunderland and Newcastle, so he is also a proven Premier League player and would be very useful should Villa get that valuable promotion next season.
Rafa Benitez is looking for new central midfielders this summer and the local press have reported that Jack is available for transfer, so this deal could happen and for £5.2M it would seem a decent deal for Newcastle, given that he was a free transfer three years ago.
In his three years on Tyneside Jack has made 102 total appearances for us with 5 goals and 16 assists and he’s been a very hard-working player for the side.

Note: Emma Daubney and her daughter Tiegan are taking part in the Race for Life for Cancer Research UK on 1st July 17th at Clumber Park in Nottinghamshire.
All donations go to Cancer Research UK.
Emma’s partner Danny lost a work colleague a couple of years ago to cancer and to had to watch the effects chemotherapy had on his body and it was heart wrenching to him as his friend had terminal cancer, but doggedly kept coming to work and plodding along.
Sadly he died in hospital and Emma’s auntie also had breast cancer but luckily came through it and was giving the all clear in the end.
So the two ladies are doing a great thing in raising funds to fight this disease and there are new treatments being developed all the time.
