Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini has revealed how close he came to quitting the club in January as he sought a move home to Argentina.

The 31-year-old club captain looked as if he was heading for the exit door and a return to former club San Lorenzo.

However, the club managed to convince Coloccini to stay at least until the end of the season and he has since praised his team for the way they handled the situation.

“I thought about walking out, but I changed my mind,” he told reporters.

“It wasn’t about the money. There were personal reasons but the club and manager have been great.

“I’ve been away from home for 13 years and I miss it. Now it’s about Newcastle United staying up… and we will.

“I love Newcastle United as a whole. I captain a huge club and I’m fully focused on helping to stay up.”

Alan Pardew’s side sit in 15th place in the league table, six points above the drop zone after clinching back-to-back wins over Chelsea and Aston Villa in the last week.
