Liverpool interest denied as Toon talks continue - reports

Newcastle United skipper Fabricio Coloccini is not a January target for Liverpool, according to the Sunday Sun.

The 29-year-old Argentine defender was linked with a move to Merseyside in a number of midweek newspapers, but it is understood that the player is happy on Tyneside.

The reports stemmed from the presence of a Liverpool scout at St James' Park for Newcastle's Barclays Premier League victory over Wigan Athletic last weekend, but Magpies boss Alan Pardew insisted he had not been made aware of interest in any of his players.

Coloccini's excellent early season form has been noted at Anfield, but Reds boss Kenny Dalglish is not thought to be interested in the player - as he doesn't fit into Liverpool's long-term future blueprint.

Director of football Damien Comolli has been tasked with scouting up-and-coming talent, with a view to protecting Liverpool's long-term future, and at 29, Coloccini would not have been identified on the club's radar.

As discussions over a new deal at St James' Park continue, the South American star, who currently earns an estimated £4.2million-a-year at Newcastle, wants to commit his future to the club, providing the two parties can reach agreement over improved contract terms.
