Newcastle skipper Coloccini delays new contract talks

Newcastle United skipper Fabricio Coloccini is taking his time over new contract talks.

Newcastle United skipper Fabricio Coloccini is taking his time over new contract talks.

The Evening Chronicle says Coloccini may even wait until the end of the season before opting to sign a deal that could see him end his career on Tyneside.

Coloccini has two years of his current contract left to run, but has made it clear he is happy with life at high-flying Newcastle.

It is also believed that one of the reasons Coloccini is paying careful detail to the finer points of his demands is due to the fact the South American funds an orphanage in Argentina for 160 children.

Coloccini is also not asking for higher wages, with the length of the deal to be finalised, although La Liga outfit Seville have been tracking the Argentine in the last 12 months and he has also been linked with Liverpool in recent weeks, with talk played down by United.
