Fabricio Coloccini in frame for Newcastle captaincy

Fabricio Coloccini is in the frame for the Newcastle United captaincy.

Toon boss Alan Pardew needs to name a new captain following Kevin Nolan's shock sale to West Ham United.

The Sunday Sun says Coloccini is currently one of the leading candidates to assume the armband next year, with strong support for Steven Taylor making the homegrown defender another possibility.

The Argie is one of the players that Pardew is now stressing MUST NOT be sold if the team is to fulfil the top-10 finish that the hierarchy have demanded of him.
