Fabrizio Coloccini’s Newcastle future has been in doubt for quite a while as the Argentine who is reportedly fit has not played throughout Newcastle’s pre-season.
Crystal Palace are reportedly keen on signing the tough tackling defender as Alan Pardew is keen on linking up with the 33 year old who was at the heart of Newcastle United’s defense during Pardew time at Tynnside. Pardew is looking to make a move for Coloccini within the next few weeks and Newcastle are reportedly ready to listen to offers for the defender whose fitness has become an issue in the last two seasons. Coloccini is reportedly open to a move away from Newcastle but would prefer to move back to Argentina where he hopes to end his playing career.
Coloccini could cost Crystal Palace as much as 5 million pounds and that would be a very high fee for a 33 year old defender in the fast paced Barclays Premier league
