Jack Colback’s summer goes from bad to worse as NUFC’s January plans are revealed..

According to the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas, Newcastle will listen to ‘low offers’ for Jack Colback in January in a bid to sell the soon-to-be out of contract midfielder.

Considering The Northern Echo said he rejected loan offers last month in a bid to force his way back into Bruce’s plans, this is not the news he’ll have been hoping to hear – and it’s not the first time he’s been able to say that this summer.

The midfielder returned from a loan spell with Nottingham Forest hoping for a second chance following Steve Bruce’s appointment, but one has not been forthcoming.

He featured in pre-season and looked like he’d be given a second chance at one stage. Since then, he’s not only been excluded from Bruce’s 25-man squad, but also failed to complete a summer move away.

As a result, he’s ‘stuck’ at club that can’t use him after failing to complete a move away during last week’s ‘deadline day’ for Europe, Scotland and the lower leagues, with League One and SPL sides unable to afford his Premier League wage demands.

With him earning a hefty £40-45,000 per week and due to be out of contract next summer, the Chronicle’s Mark Douglas has stated during a new Q&A that Newcastle will listen to ‘low offers’ for him in January.

He was a tidy squad player at one stage, but it looks like his time on Tyneside could reach its inevitable end in a few months time if any cut-price offer arrives.

One thought on “Jack Colback’s summer goes from bad to worse as NUFC’s January plans are revealed..

  1. First of all – he WAS given a second chance. He trained and played with the first team pre-season. That was his second chance. He had the chance to impress Bruce and he didn’t take it.

    On the subject of him being offered for sale at a low price, I’m not quite sure how that’s bad news for him. He’s already failed to make the squad so come June he’s gone.
    If he’s offered for sale at a low price and he doesn’t like the wages he just says “no thanks” and sits on his ar5e for the next 6 months on 40K + a week. Another million quid less tax in the bank.
    So not really bad news at all.

    Yeah, lots of fans will slag him off saying things like “that’s what he’s really like”, or that he’s a “slimeball” or whatever, because, of course, the people reading this can afford to give away a million quid, just like that.
