After weeks of rumors suggesting the Argentine defender of Newcastle United to make a move back to his childhood club San Lorenzo and even his wife saying that she went back to Argentina along with the children, Coloccini denied all of those rumors and he insisted that he will remain with the Premier League club.

He told the Shields Gazette: “The Press sometimes says things I said months ago, not now.
“I respect the fans. When I go on to the pitch, I always give 100 per cent for this shirt because they give me lots of love, and I have to say thank you.”

Coloccini signed for Newcastle United from Deportivo La Coruna with a transfer fee of £10.3million having to be paid in order for the Premier League team to secure the services of the experienced defender.

It is believed that Coloccini asked to leave the club and make a return to his native country, 1 year ago but now all of the claims and rumors were shut down by the player who committed his future with Newcastle United.

The Argentinean club San Lorenzo tried to sign at the beginning of this year but a few obstacles stood in their path with Alan Pardew blocking the transfer and the lack of funds being available for San Lorenzo to make a proper and official offer for Coloccini.

The current contract of Coloccini expires in 2016 but his breakthrough performances in 2011 saw Newcastle United conceding only 8 goals in the first 11 matches as Fabricio Coloccini formed one of the best defences of the Premier League of that year when he was partnered up with Taylor.

This is one of the main reasons why Alan Pardew insisted so much in stopping the transfer involving San Lorenzo and Newcastle United to be completed.
