The 32-year-old has been continuously linked with a return to his homeland with San Lorenzo after he asked to be allowed to retune during the January transfer window.
However, the Magpies refused his request and remedied him that he is tied to a long term deal at the club, though they relented from their stance in recent months.
But now the Argentine international, who will be heading to the World Cup with his country this summer, has now announced that he will be retuning to the club after the tournament in Brazil.
“For sure. I’m going to be here.”
Coloccini says he has overcome the issues which prompted him to ask for a move.
“I had personal problems,” said Coloccini.
“Sometimes it’s tough. You have to decide between the problems and the work.
“Sometimes it’s too difficult. Now it’s finished, and next season I will be here. I’m looking forward to improving.
“We want the best for Newcastle United.
“This season we finished top 10, and maybe we will bring some players (in the summer).
“We will try to do well and finish in the top eight, or something like that. We will always try to improve.”
