Coloccini agent cools move talk

Fabricio Coloccini's agent has cooled speculation which suggested the defender was seeking a move away from Newcastle.

Fabricio Coloccini signed for Newcastle in 2008 and stayed at the club when they were relegated
Fabricio Coloccini fell out with Newcastle manager Alan Pardew earlier in the season

The Argentina international's father caused a stir on Thursday when stating his son was looking into ending his contract with the Magpies in order to secure a move to San Lorenzo, whom he played for a decade ago.

"Fabricio wants to play for San Lorenzo and he is trying his best to find an elegant way to leave Newcastle," Coloccini's father Osvaldo, who works for San Lorenzo, told Indirecto on TyC Sports.

Coloccini had a falling out with Alan Pardew earlier in the season and although the Magpies boss recently claimed the pair had settled their differences, it has given weight to talk of a move.

However, the centre-back's agent Marcelo Lombilla was quick to deny that Coloccini was on his way to San Lorenzo.

"The San Lorenzo thing arises because of a personal matter, and because his father is at the club," Lombilla told Radio 9. "He only renewed his contract six months ago.

"These stories always create a buzz and generate illusions, but they are just that illusions and nothing more. These things written I just cannot believe."
