Published Add your comment

Fabricio Coloccini wants to extend his stay at Newcastle beyond its current terms, according to teammate Jonas Gutierrez.

The Argentine pair joined the Magpies in the summer of 2008, and both played pivotal roles in the side that gained promotion in 2010, having be relegated from the Barclays Premier League the previous year.

Gutierrez committed himself to Newcastle yesterday by signing a new four year contract, and now expects the Toon skipper to follow suit.


"Colo and I love life at Newcastle and want to spend our best years here," Gutierrez told the Evening Chronicle.

"Since Newcastle returned to the Premier League, Colo has been in great form. This wasn't a surprise for me because I played against him many times in La Liga when he was at Depor and I was at Real Mallorca.

"He is a very important player for us. He is doing really well as captain and he has a big experience of playing in first-class matches."
