According to reports, Jack Colback’s whopping £70,000-per-week is preventing Newcastle United from completing the sale of the midfielder.
Jack Colback made a controversial switch from Sunderland to Newcastle United back in the summer of 2014 and while the Magpies faithful would have been delighted with the arrival of the midfielder at the time, he has not quite managed to win over the fans during his time at the club so far.
Colback has been distinctly average at Newcastle United and with the 27-year-old allegedly having fallen out with manager Rafael Benitez, he is widely expected to be leaving St. James’ Park during the current summer transfer window.
While Newcastle have been keen on getting rid of Colback for quite a while now, they have not been able to do so as of yet and recent reports have outline the reason why the Englishman still remains a Magpies player.
Claims have been made that the likes of Burnley and Swansea City are both interested in Colback but they are not willing to match his £70,000-per-week wages and Newcastle will have to hope that the player takes a pay-cut in order for him to leave this summer.
