Newcastle boss Pardew calm as Coloccini contract talks drag on
The Sunday Sun says United had been hoping for a swift resolution to the impasse over the skipper's deal but Alan Pardew says that more talks are required.
He remains "relaxed" about the situation and insists there has NOT been a setback, but Newcastle's attempts to tie the player down for the rest of his career will have to wait.
"We've had further discussions and I think there are further discussions to be had on that," Pardew said. "I'm relaxed about it."
