Prior to Dan Burn’s arrival, the last time Newcastle United signed a centre-back was way back in August 2018, seeing Rafa Benitez sign Federico Fernandez from Swansea. If that stat wasn’t bad enough, showing how long we’ve had to wait for defensive reinforcements, just wait until the next one. Incredibly, a £13m deal for Burn was the first time we’ve spent more than £10m on a centre half since Fabricio Coloccini signed in 2008. In fact, prior to Dan Burn’s arrival from Brighton, we’ve only spent over £6m on a centre-back THREE times since Colo swapped Deportivo for Tyneside 14 years ago:

index 0 Former Newcastle United defender Fabricio Coloccini has revealed that he would so much cherish the idea of being called back to the Argentina national team after a long time out of the setup. The former Premier League defender now plays for Argentine Primera Division side Aldosivi. After beginning his career in his home country with Boca Juniors, one of Argentina's best club teams, he started to attract interest from a number of clubs across Europe, including Italian Serie A giants AC Milan. He sealed a transfer to the San Siro from Boca Juniors but it was not a fairytale spell for him in Italy and was loaned to four different clubs afterward. He recently played for Newcastle in the English Premier League but he was yet again unlucky and could not replicate the form that saw him gain a lot of media attention at Boca Juniors. He could not cope with the intensity and the rush of the English League and after also battling against a lack of form and inconsistency, there was very little or nothing he could do to convince the Newcastle bosses that he still had what it takes to put his career back on track and from there it was agreed by mutual consent that the best decision would be to leave St James' Park.
