Coloccini boost for Newcastle


Fabricio Coloccini could be fit for Newcastle's Premier League trip to Stoke next week.

Coloccini picked up a calf injury while on a mid-season training camp in Spain and it was feared that the defender would be sidelined for up to a month.

However, those fears have been allayed with the club captain in line to return for next week's game against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium.

"Newcastle United can confirm that captain Fabricio Coloccini suffered a slight calf strain during the Club’s recent training camp in La Manga," a statement from the club read.

"The Argentine defender subsequently underwent a scan, the results of which have shown that the injury is not as bad as has been reported.

"The club’s medical staff are working hard with Coloccini to try and ensure the centre-back is available for selection at Stoke City in eight days’ time (Wednesday, 2nd March)."
