Coloccini had been keen to leave last month due to personal reasons and return to Argentine club San Lorenzo, but manager Alan Pardew made it clear that he would be staying on as captain until at least the summer.

The centre-back remains unsure what will happen in the long-term future but says he is committed to performing as well as he can for the Magpies for the remainder of the season.

He said: "Yes. I am happy to play now. When the situation was finished, I said to the club that we can turn the page, we have moved on. I'm only focusing on the club now.

"Next season, I don't know. I just want to be focused on the Premier League and the Europa League this season.

"Newcastle have won nothing for so many years and that is wrong. We want to put that right and get our names in the history books."

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
