Newcastle have demanded that Seville up their bid of £5 million to £7 million for Fabricio Coloccini, with the Argentinian looking set to make an exit in the summer, according to The Sun.

Coloccini, who has made 115 appearances for Newcastle, is one of numerous more mature players being given the axe by Mike Ashley, in a bid to cut costs at St James’ Park and lower the average age of the squad.


Joey Barton, Alan Smith, Jose Enrique and Jonas Gutierrez all look to be leaving Newcastle, and Kevin Nolan has already departed for West Ham, and like the core group of Newcastle’s older players, Coliccini is reportedly unhappy with the big changes going on at the northern club.

Coloccini, like Barton and Nolan, has been a stalwart at Newcastle since he moved to the club in 2008. The Argentinian formed a close bond with Jose Enrique and Jonas Gutierrez, with the three being dubbed ‘the three amigos’.

Now the trio all look set to exit the club though, as Ashley and Alan Pardew make way for fresher talent.
