Fabricio Coloccini: Steven Taylor enjoys playing alongside him

The 31-year-old asked to leave during the January transfer window and the Magpies are likely to be faced with further interest in him from Argentinian club San Lorenzo.

Coloccini's father is employed as a youth coach by San Lorenzo and club president Matias Lammens has already indicated that he will be travelling to England to try and prise the player away from the Premier League.

Boss Alan Pardew has already stated his desire to keep Coloccini and Taylor is just as keen for him to stay.

Taylor told the Shields Gazette: "The lads love playing with him and we hope he stays. He's a very quiet guy, but when he speaks, he speaks very well.

"Colo and I have had a great partnership over the past few seasons. We have a good understanding. We know each other's strengths and weaknesses. We seem to be able to mix it up.

"He's very composed and he's not shy of a tackle as well. He's been great a guy in training. You can learn a lot from him.

"I've got a fantastic partnership with him, and hopefully that will continue."

errible night all round. This was a team there for the taking yet I fail to recall their 'keeper making a notable save. Sterling decided to have his worst game ever, Coutinho only provided about two good passes all game and Balotelli continues to frustrate. The less said about the set piece defending the better. Daniel Sturridge cannot came back soon enough. The lack of a real threat in the final third is so surprising, no killer pass, not testing...
