The Mail is reporting today that local lad Jack Colback has almost certainly played his last game for Newcastle and the writing was even on the wall for Jack when he was left out of the squad for the final two friendly games in preseason.
The Mail is reporting there was a training ground incident earlier this week when he was already training away from the main squad.
There was news earlier in the week in the Shields Gazette that Jack had been told he would not make the 25 man squad for the Premier League this season.
Sportsmail is reporting that the 27-year-old was called back to the first team squad after a player had picked up a knock in training last week.
Jack Colback – no future at his local club
Colback, however, refused to rejoin the squad and that did not make Rafa Benitez a happy camper., and Rafa controls the discipline at the club with an iron fist wrapped in a velvet glove and will not put up with any nonsense whatsoever in training.

Rafa Benitez has since told the player to train alone and he will obviously be available for transfer this month and could be a good buy for a top Championship club.
Jack reported to the training ground yesterday afternoon and was told to train on his own after the senior first team training session had already ended.
Like some current Newcastle players who are surplus to requirements, his high wages – estimated at £40K/week – will be a deterrent to him leaving the club.
Jack joined us on a free transfer from Sunderland three years ago, and he still has two years left to run on his contract.
