After the long conversation between Newcastle side and Deportivo’s officials, 26-year-old Coloccini looks set to wear the sacred Black-and-White this season after both clubs reach the final agreement for his transfer.
Keegan will be pleased to sign central-defender Coloccini for £8.25m this weekend, and the United official announcement is expected on Monday.
Coloccini will join his Argentine national team-mate Jonas Gutierrez who already signed for Toon last month. Both would be usefull addition to our thin squad, especially in defence. We have suffered 65 goals last season, one of the worst season in United Premiership years.
With Coloccini presence, KK is hoping to have find the perfect player to break our worst defensive record. And other news coming today that Keegan is also chasing Blackburn’s £5m-rated left back Stephen Warnock.
