Several Newcastle United players are due pay-rises later this season.

Fabricio Coloccini's contract is now the No 1 priority for the club following the closure of the transfer window - along with new deals for Danny Guthrie and Danny Simpson.

A wage bump and re-negotiation with Demba Ba, who has a clause in his contract that will allow sides to take him for a knock down fee in the summer - will have to wait.

The Sunday Sun says that others being lined up for new deals include Tim Krul and Yohan Cabaye.
