Newcastle United fans can convince Fabricio Coloccini to stay, says manager Alan Pardew.

The Newcastle United captain will hold crunch talks with Pardew this week, with the Toon gaffer desperate to hold on to his defensive lynchpin.

Pardew told the Evening Chronicle: "He played very well (against Norwich City), and the love from the fans is important for any player - but particularly where we are right now.

"That can't do anything but help us."
