The agent of Deportivo La Coruna defender Fabricio Coloccini has revealed they're in talks with Newcastle United.

Marcelo Lombilla claims he has discussed Newcastle's approach with Deportivo president Augusto Cesar Lendoiro, but has yet to reveal the outcome of the discourse.

A fee of £8million has been mooted and while such a figure may prove prohibitive, the fact Coloccini has been left out of Depor's pre-season tour of Venezuela does add weight to any exit talk.

"The only offer that I have received is from Newcastle, which I communicated to Deportivo," Coloccini told AS.
