And the Argentinian defender insists United’s off-field strife – not him or his team-mates – is to blame for the Magpies’ relegation to the Championship. Coloccini tops the list of players Newcastle hope to cash in on this summer as the economic reality of life outside the Premier League sinks in. But the 27-year-old believes a move is now looking “impossible” because of the Magpies’ insistence that they will not let him leave on loan. “At this moment, it is very complicated to leave Newcastle because they are asking for too much from any club interested in doing a deal,” said Coloccini. “The club only wants to sell me, not do a loan with the option to sell. My agent has talked to the Newcastle directors and it’s very complicated. “Newcastle are thinking only about getting money back at the moment, but the worldwide financial crisis doesn’t help when it comes to selling a footballer. “It’s true that some Spanish clubs have asked about me, but it’s been impossible to negotiate an agreement.” Meanwhile, Coloccini – a major disappointment since his £10 million-plus move to Tyneside from Deportivo La Coruna last summer – also reflected on relegation. “I’m unhappy about the situation because I came to the Premier League with so much hope and the season was a disaster,” he added. “People have criticised the players but all the problems within the club damaged us on the pitch. “I have never experienced so many changes on the bench during my career, and stability is fundamental for players.” And Coloccini concluded: “If a solution is not possible, I am willing to play in the Championship, but with the same financial conditions.” Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
