Coloccini the priority for Newcastle United
Alan Pardew’s immediate priority is to keep Fabricio Coloccini at Newcastle United.
The Argentine defender is out of contract in the summer of 2013, and he has been linked with a move to Premier League rivals Liverpool in recent weeks.
Coloccini has emerged as a key member of the Magpies starting eleven, though, and Pardew is determined to tie the 29-year-old to a new deal.
"The priority for me is Coloccini's new contract,” he said in The Mirror. “He is our captain and I want to keep him. Negotiations are due to restart shortly."
