Coloccini does not want to leave Newcastle for San Lorenzo, says agent

The player's representative has denied claims that the defender is looking to return to Argentina and a former club by saying such reports are "illusions and nothing more"
The agent of Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini has denied reports that the Argentine is looking to leave St James’ Park.

Coloccini’s father, Osvaldo, was recently quoted as telling Indirecto on TyC Sports that: "Fabricio wants to play for San Lorenzo and he is trying his best to find an elegant way to leave Newcastle."

However Marcelo Lombilla, Coloccini’s agent, has rubbished talk of a move away from Newcastle, stating the player recently signed a long-term contract at the club and insisting reports of a potential transfer are not to be believed.

"The San Lorenzo thing arises because of a personal matter, and because his father is at the club," Lombilla told Radio 9.

"He has only just renewed his contract six months ago.

"These stories always generate a buzz and generate illusions, but they are just illusions and nothing more.

"These things written I just cannot believe."
