Sevilla swoop for Toon misfit Coloccini

Newcastle United are ready to offload expensive Argentinian flop Fabricio Coloccini after the club's unfortunate exit from the Premier League on Sunday.

Coloccini, 26, signed for the Magpies from Deportivo La Coruna for a club record 10 million for a defender in July 2008.

He has failed to settle in the team, and has made costly errors throughout the season, and is not preferred by Alan Shearer therefore.

Spanish outfit Sevilla FC are preparing to take the expensive flop off Shearer's hands with a 4 million offer, but Newcastle United will hold out for 6 million.

Delph would be a great shout, the likes of Simon Cox, Beckford and Ricky Lambert would all be options. Possibly a couple of Millwall's youngsters as well.

Martins should go for 10m. Add in Coloccini and Gutirrez for another 10m, and Enrique and Xisco for 8m, and the club is almost at the desired 30m off the books. In terms of who the team could buy I would say the following: Kyle Naughton 4m who can play RB and RM, Mark Beevers CB and Tommy Spurr LB from Wednesday for a combined 6m, Miles Addison from Derby as a DM/CB for 4m, Adam Johnson for Boro with Josh Walker for a combined 8m, and maybe swap Kevin Nolan for Matt Derbyshire at Blackburn. So far that's 22m spent so the club have made 6m+ in sales. Newcastle will also be attractive to the Top4 as a destination for them to loan players so could get players on loan like Kristian Nemeth FW (Liverpool), Henri Lansbury MF (Arsenal), Darron Gibson MF (ManU) and Michael Macciene DF (Chelsea) as possible examples. They will want to have their youngsters gain experience of playing in front of big crowds both home and probably also away.

Addison looked great v Man Utd in the Carling Cup this season. We need some power and legs in midfield after the drivel of Butt, Nolan and Guthrie. Would definitely look at the season long loan market too.
