Coloccini committed to Magpies

Published Add your comment

Newcastle skipper Fabricio Coloccini has reaffirmed his commitment to the club after agreeing to remain on Tyneside until at least the end of the season.

The 31-year-old Argentina international's future has been the subject of intense speculation ever since it emerged that he had asked to be allowed to return to South America for personal reasons.

However, manager Alan Pardew revealed on Friday that his captain would be staying, and now the defender has spoken for the first time about the matter. Coloccini told the Magpies' official web site, "The last few weeks, there has been a lot of talk about my future. But I am staying here, and of course I will give 100 per cent like I always do."
