Newcastle United defender Fabricio Coloccini has said that he is hoping that the club was even more active in the summer transfer window. Newcastle have made some shrewd signings in the summer transfer window after finishing in fifth position last season.
Many are expecting that Newcastle will be able to kick on from this finish and qualify for the Champions League this time around. Even though Fabricio Coloccini accepts that it is quite to be extremely tough in order to do that, he is hoping that the signings that the club make in the summer transfer window prove to be essential towards this cause.
The Newcastle United captain is likely to see the return of Andy Carroll to Tyneside. The Liverpool striker moved to Anfield in 2011 for a transfer fee of £ 35 million, but his value has decreased rapidly after not performing well in these 18 months. Newcastle manager Alan Pardew recently revealed that he would like to bring the striker back to St James’s Park, but only on a loan deal. However, he has said that the loan deal would be made permanent in the summer his Andy Carroll rediscovered his scoring touch. Liverpool, though, are insisting upon a permanent deal.
“We’ll have to wait and see, but I hope so. It is going to be interesting. Hatem and Yohan are back now, too. That can only boost our players here. We want to see them back and fit again. It was good to be back. The pitch was heavy and it was tough because of the rain. We were disappointed to concede a goal in the last minute. But we have to pull out the positive things,” said the Newcastle United defender after the 1-1 draw with Turkish club Fenerbahce in a friendly match.
