Newcastle United defender Fabricio Coloccini appears to be on the verge of heading out of the club after reaffirming his desire to end his stay at St. James’ Park.

According to an exclusive in The Independent, Coloccini does not intend to play against Aston Villa in Tuesday’s crucial relegation battle at Villa Park – their next game. Coloccini has reportedly told United that he doesn’t want to play another game for the club despite the fact that his old team in Argentina, San Lorenzo, have come out and said they can’t find the funds to buy the player.

Coloccini’s wife is believed to have returned to Argentina. The footballer wants to return to Argentina to deal with “personal matters.”
