St James’ Park commit to long term deals.
Newcastle United goalkeeper Tim Krul and captain Fabricio Coloccini have pledged their futures to the club by signing new long-term contracts.
Krul has agreed a five-and-a-half year deal to stay at St James’ Park, while Coloccini has accepted a new four-and-a-half year contract.
The duo have been instrumental figures in the Magpies’ excellent season to date and have attracted interest from rival Premier League clubs.

Alan Pardew will be a relieved man having seen two of his prized assets putting pen to paper on new deals as there has been much speculation about the futures of keeper Tim Krul and centre back Fabricio Coloccini.
The Mapgies are flying high this term and have a decent shot at clinching an unlikely top four finish and this may well have acted as a catalyst to help persuade the pair to commit themselves to a club who are clearly on the up.
Argentine international Coloccini has been strongly linked with interest from Liverpool, who last year nabbed both Andy Carroll and Jose Enrique from the St James’ Park club.
Tottenham were linked with a move for Dutch keeper Tim Krul in January.
