Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini has assured fans of his commitment.

The Argentina defender has reassured fans of his commitment to that cause for the remainder of the season at least. Coloccini looked certain to quit the club in January for personal reasons but has vowed to stay until the end of the season.

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