Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is in the dark over Fabricio Coloccini's comments about wanting to return to Argentina.

After victory over Norwich City, Pardew was asked about the interview.

He said: "I wasn't aware of that, if I am honest. But it's difficult when players go home and they are interviewed. You never know if there is any truth in it.

"I haven't spoken to Colo about that."
