Newcastle United skipper Fabricio Coloccini may not appear again until the New Year.

Newcastle have been dealt a major blow with the news that captain Coloccini is facing an eight-week absence, says the Independent.

The 31-year-old central defender damaged his groin during training on international duty with Argentina last week. He did not play in his country’s first World Cup qualifier against Peru, a 3-1 victory, and was sent back to Tyneside before Argentina’s defeat to Uruguay.
