Newcastle United won't consider Fabricio Coloccini's departure this month.

The People says Newcastle are scared that skipper Coloccini is hankering after a move back to Argentina, especially as his father is coaching his former club San Lorenzo.

But Coloccini, who cost £10m when he joined Toon from ­Deportivo La Coruna in 2008, will not be allowed to leave St James' Park in the current transfer window.
