Liverpool are still monitoring the contract situation of Newcastle captain Fabricio Coloccini, it has been claimed.

The Argentine defender has 18 months to run on his current deal but has reportedly put off any talks over extension until the summer.

According to the Daily Star, Liverpool director of football Damien Comolli has made a personal check on Colocinni and an attempt to bring him to Anfield could now be in the offing.

Newcastle, though, are desperate to keep the 29-year-old at St James' Park and he is likely to extend his deal, despite the interest of Liverpool.

Whether or not Liverpool decide to formalise their interest in Coloccini remains to be seen, but the centre-back is known to he happy at Newcastle.

Alan Pardew, meanwhile, is expected to reinforce his goalscoring department when the transfer window opens in January.

The Toon boss is reportedly set to sign Modibo Maiga from Sochaux, while he is also alleged to be tracking Huddersfield hotshot Jordan Rhodes.
