Pardew Wants Coloccini To Stay - No Matter What Ashley Says!
23 June 2011 01:11
According to the Chronicle, Alan Pardew is desperate to hold on to Fabricio Coloccini - despite Mike Ashley suggesting he would take the "right price" for the defender. Pardew played down questions that the defender was on the club owner's transfer list by simply saying: "I hope Fabricio is still a Newcastle player at the start of the campaign." And Colo's Argentine team-mate, Jonas Gutierrez, is another Ashley wants to off-load, but he insists he does not want to leave St James’ Park. There is interest from Seville in Coloccini but the United management see him as pivotal to their plans next season. And Gutierrez - who Tweeted that he was “surprised” to see reports linking him with an exit before re-Tweeting fans’ messages imploring him to stay - is keen to stay for the remainder of his contract. The winger faces a battle for his place after Marveaux joined.
