Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is desperate to tie Danny Guthrie and Fabricio Coloccini to new contracts.

Guthrie has been a revelation when standing in for Cheick Tiote in the midfield anchor role while captain Coloccini is arguably the Magpies’ player of the ­season so far.

Pardew said: “Danny has impressed me this season. He has been outstanding when given his chance.

“I haven’t had a chat with him about a new contract but it will happen shortly.

“When Tiote went out of the team injured and Danny came in, it was seamless.

“And high on my list is a new contract for Coloccini. I would like to get his ­future at the club sorted out.

“He has been outstanding."
