The skipper was in Argentina at the beginning of March for rehab on his back injury, sustained when he did his spectacular bicycle-kick clearance against Southampton.
After stating that he wanted to return home on a permanent basis in January, the Argentine was linked with a transfer to San Lorenzo, but no deal was made between the two clubs.
However, Newcastle fans have more reason to be worried about Coloccini’s future, after he was spotted signing with travelling San Lorenzo fans during their sides’ win at the weekend. Coloccini stood in the stands with fellow supporters, and looked extremely happy to be at the club.
Coloccini was desperate to sign for San Lorenzo in January, and even wrote an open letter to their fans, revealing his disappointment that a deal couldn’t happen. His dad, Osvaldo, is a youth coach at the club, adding further speculation that the Argentine will be at the club in the near future.
Coloccini’s contract doesn’t expire until 2016, however the possibilities of the current captain playing for the Toon again are growing slimmer. Coloccini isn’t expected to feature in Newcastle’s trip to the Etihad to play Manchester City, as he recovers from his back injury.
