Pardew targets two new signings INSIDE Toon dressing room

Post  1892NUFF on Sun Jan 22, 2012 12:07 pm

Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has revealed his next two priority signings.

Both players are already at St James’ Park but sealing new contracts for midfield ace Danny Guthrie and ­Argentinian centre-back Fabricio Colocinni is ­dominating his thinking.

Guthrie has been a revelation when standing in for Cheick Tiote in the midfield anchor role while captain Colocinni is arguably the Magpies’ player of the ­season so far.

Pardew said: “Danny has impressed me this season. He has been outstanding when given his chance.

“I haven’t had a chat with him about a new contract but it will happen shortly.

“When Tiote went out of the team injured and Danny came in, it was seamless.”

Pardew believes Guthrie can become a top player at Newcastle if he commits his future to the club.

He added: “His passing is fantastic. He makes a big statement on the pitch. He just fits into how I play.

“These negotiations are going to be difficult for him. But he’s in a good place and he needs to remember the grass isn’t always greener.

“And high on my list is a new contract for Coloccini. I would like to get his ­future at the club sorted out.

“He has been outstanding and justified my decision to give him the armband. He is a huge player for us.”
