Fabricio Coloccini has announced that he will be staying with Newcastle United for at least one more season according to Goal.com.
The Argentine has been heavily linked with a move back to Argentina, with speculation linking him with a move to former club San Lorenzo.
The future of Coloccini at Newcastle was plunged into doubt in January when it was revealed that he was desperate to move to Argentina for family reasons and although Newcastle didn’t allow him to leave, it was unknown whether he would leave this summer.
The defender has thought about his future with Newcastle and has decided to stay at St James Park and repay the faith shown in him by manager Alan Pardew.
“I’m a grateful person and Newcastle have given me the opportunity of playing in the Premier League, which is the elite of football, so I will stay at Newcastle,” said Coloccini in an interview.
With the defender now staying at Newcastle, the club can press ahead with plans to improve their squad after a disappointing season.
The club have been linked with moves for Aston Villa’s Darren Bent as well as Celtic’s young midfielder Victor Wanyama who has attracted interest from a number of top European clubs.
