Coloccini has told Newcastle he would like to return to his native Argentina, with his father Osvaldo, a youth coach at San Lorenzo, earlier saying his son was 'anxious' to leave Tyneside.

The 31-year-old centre-back spent time on loan at San Lorenzo from AC Milan more than a decade ago, and they were keen to seal a deal but were unwilling to pay a fee.

San Lorenzo announced on their official Twitter feed: "Finally, after long negotiations, we announce that Fabricio Coloccini will not join the squad of San Lorenzo

"It was not possible to release the Newcastle player for this month and therefore the club will look for another alternative to strengthen the defence."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

'Tactically Inept And Lacking In Belief And Style'

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
