Coloccini agent: Newcastle will double Depor wages

The agent of Deportivo La Coruna defender Fabricio Coloccini says Newcastle United have a clear run at the Argentina international.

Marcelo Lombilla denied rival interest from Tottenham, insisting: "It was proposed to Fabricio a five-year contract with a salary that's doubling his current wages.

"There wasn't any other offer that was not coming from Newcastle.

"The only one exceeding 10m, which I knew that could satisfy the president, was the one of Newcastle and it was also interesting for the player."
