Newcastle manager Alan Pardew is hopeful of convincing Coloccini to stay with Newcastle this summer after the defender left twice this year to be in South America, reports the Mirror.

Pardew wants the defender to honor the remaining two years on his contract, though the player asked to quit the team for personal reasons last season. Coloccini has also been to South America and away from the team twice this year.

Coloccini (knee) has been out since New Year's Day, and could be back for Newcastle's clash with Aston Villa on February 23rd, the Sunderland Echo reports.

Coloccini (knee) is expected to miss Newcastle's match against Sunderland despite potentially returning to training that week, reports Sky Sports.

Coloccini could miss up to six weeks after suffering a knee injury during Wednesday's match against West Brom, the Daily Mail reports.

Coloccini battled a thigh injury earlier this season, so a new knee injury is certainly not how he wanted to start 2014. The Newcastle captain is very important to the back four, but doesn't provide a ton of fantasy value outside of clean sheets.
