Newcastle United haven't shelved their pursuit of FC Twente defender Douglas.

The People says Fabricio ­Coloccini told ­Argentinian ­television on Friday that he intends to stay for at least ­another ­season.

However Newcastle are still ­interested in FC Twente's central defender Douglas, a free agent on July 1, especially as Mike Williamson is wanted by his former Watford boss Malky Mackay at Cardiff.
