Newcastle Midfielder Set To Miss Out

Newcastle Midfielder Set To Miss Out

Jack Colback wont be named in Newcastle's 25 man Premier League squad according to local newspaper Shields Gazette.

Local lad Colback who is 27 years old, has quite a bit of premier league experience but has seen his position been taken over the last year by Isaac Hayden.

Colback is one of those marmite players where he does lack ability but can make up for it with extra effort although there's times where his effort isn't enough and it shows him up.

The news if proven to be true will cheer a fair few fans who have called for him to be dropped for ages although he does fit the Rafa Benitez mould where effort and trust ranks higher than ability some times although in this instance, it's not enough.

It's been common knowledge all Summer that Colback was on a list of players available to be sold and with there being nothing imminent on that score, he may be available for a loan.

His former club and bitter rivals Sunderland would be an ideal return for him bearing in mind their position at present but a few barriers would have to be overcome first and on that score it may be an impossible destination.
