29-Year-Old Midfielder Likely To Be Sold This Summer

Website Tranfermarkt.com reports that Jack Colback’s contract at Newcastle runs out at the end of June and we always thought that Jack signed a five-year deal as a free agent from Sunderland back in 2014.

But the Chronicle recently reported he still has one year left on his contract and therefore Newcastle will be able to get a fee for him this summer.

Jack has been on loan at Nottingham Forest, and manager Martin O’Neill seems keen to sign him after Colback has played well on loan there this season.

O’Neill managed Jack while he was at Sunderland and rates the player.

So it seems negotiations with Newcastle may already be underway for Forest and Newcastle to agree a fee for the Geordie midfielder.

Jack fell out with Rafa a couple of years ago in a training incident, and he has no future at the cub, but it will be good to get a fee for the 29-year-old

Colback has appeared 39 times for Forest this season with 3 goals and 2 assists, and the defensive midfielder has been one of their best players.

This is what O’Neill has said about his squad:

“I intend to speak to all of the squad, that is absolutely my intention.”

“I want to see where we all stand for next season, both when it comes to the players who are under contract, the players who are out of contract and, of course, the players who are here on loan.”

“I have a fairly decent idea in my mind of what we want to do, yes.”

Rafa will be wanting to get transfer fees for some of our fringe players this summer including Colback, Saivet, Lazaar, and Rolando Aarons, among others.

What do you think?

    Speaking of Jack brings to mind that the risible shower down the road are away at Fleetwood Town tonight, (who I didn’t even realize were in the football league), and with automatic promotion joyously slipping away fast through their stubby grubby fingers. Hee, hee, hee. Good fun!

    Transfermarkt values the 4 of them at about £6M
    which means we’ll probably get £18M which should
    cover big Ron’s fee

    Rondon didn’t half miss Almiron and Perez
    He’s averaged 71% for passes completed in the opposition half since the Huddersfield game ?
    In the last few away games – the stats: WHU (72%), AFCB (71.4%), LCFC (68.2%), AFC (53%)
    But against Brighton? 46.7% ??

    Ha, ha, yeah right, Joey’s their manager. Excellent. He might even rough a few of them up in the tunnel before kick off just to give them something to think about. 🙂

    Totally agree with what you said on the last thread about the press being the last to know when it comes to the contract and I think rightly so. Rafa though in his interviews is saying no further forward, so its also him letting us know as well as the press and that is what makes everybody worry.

    I still think he will end up signing, I just hope it isnt only blind hope by me for his though

    I think we would be lucky to get £5-6 mil for Lazaar, Saivet, Colback and Aarons

    Leave the sarcasm to Tsunki
    You’re hopeless at it.
    A Rafa said is what is clear as the nose on your face
    Until the last game nothing is planned.
