Newcastle Seal Coloccini Deal

Deportivo La Coruña have officially announced that they have reached an agreement with Premier League side Newcastle United over the transfer of Fabricio Coloccini. The Argentine leaves for a potential fee of €13m...

Coloccini has for weeks been angling for a move to the Tyneside outfit amidst acrimonious scenes at the Riazor. Now, though, he appears to have got his wish.

'SuperDepor' have accepted a bid from Newcastle that could reach €13m after incentives relating to factors such as appearance milestones and league finishes.

Newcastle, then, are preparing for one of several new faces that Kevin Keegan and his technical staff have deemed important to their push towards the top six next season.

Coloccini, a 26-year-old Argentina international, arrived at Depor in 2004 after an ill-fated, five-year spell at AC Milan. His time at San Siro was spent almost entirely out on loan, including three spells in Spain with Alavés, Atlético Madrid and Villarreal.

At Depor he proved to be a defender of legendary proportions, racking up well in excess of 100 appearances right across the back line. A recognised centre-back, he spent most of the 2006-07 campaign out on the right before shifting back to the centre as part of a 5-3-2 last year.

Overall Depor are sorry to see him leave, with coach Miguel Ángel Lotina now seeking a replacement.

"I have made clear what I'm looking for: the player and himself know it," he said, mysteriously.

"I won't say who it is until I've met with the President."

For his part, Coloccini has not formally put pen to paper with the Magpies just yet, but considering his desire to move to the north-east it can only be a matter of time.
