Newcastle boss Pardew hoping to keep Coloccini

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has said that he is intent on keeping central defender and captain Fabricio Coloccini, who has been linked with a move away from the North East, Sky Sports has reported.

Speculation has been rife that Coloccini could be on his way out of St. James’ Park since January 2013, when he expressed his desire to return to his native Argentina to join San Lorenzo. However, he has stayed at the club since and has helped them to an impressive eighth place in the Premier League this season.

Coloccini, who signed in the summer of 2008, has a contract which runs until the end of the 2015-16 season, and Pardew expects him to stay until then at least. He said: "I'm not worried about it at this stage, but obviously it is a conversation that I will have with Colo and we will pick the right decision for the club.

"What might be right for him might not be right for the club, but I am hoping we both make the same decision because I want him to stay.

"He is an essential part of this team, one of my most important players. I don't see anything to give me cause for alarm, if I am honest. His mentality for the game will never change. He is quite calm. He enters the game to be the best player - and most of the time he is."
