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.
