Newcastle have received a boost on the eve of their derby clash with Sunderland after announcing skipper Fabricio Coloccini and goalkeeper Tim Krul have agreed new long-term deals with the club.

Argentinian defender Coloccini has agreed a new four-year contract, while Dutchman Krul, who has impressed after making the number one jersey his own this season, has put pen to paper on a five-year deal.

"As far as I'm concerned and the players and staff it's a huge boost before tomorrow's game and I hope our fans will continue today with a nice smile on their face and we continue that through Sunday evening," Pardew, flanked by Coloccini and Krul, told a press conference.
