Fabricio Coloccini to tell Newcastle he still wants to leave

Captain wants to return to Argentina

Fabricio Coloccini is set for new talks with Newcastle officials tomorrow about his desire to leave the club during the transfer window.

Coloccini first met with club officials last Thursday when the 30-year-old said he wanted to return to Argentina. Talks will resume tomorrow afternoon, when the player will reiterate his desire to leave.

Coloccini has three years left on his contract but wants to play for San Lorenzo, with the Argentine league set to restart on 9 February.
