NUFC set to finally offload forgotten man after TWO English sides show serious interest

The Chronicle report this morning that Newcastle have devised an ‘exit strategy’ to finally get rid of Jack Colback  – with scouts from Leeds United and Birmingham City present to watch the midfielder in a recent U-23 outing ahead of the January window.

The pair of Championship clubs watched on as he played in the U-23’s 4-1 win over Reading at Whitley Park earlier this week.

He’s failed to make a single appearance in the first team this season and Benitez has made it clear that he has no future at the club, admitting that even centre-back Chancel Mbemba is above him in the midfield pecking order!

According to The Chronicle, Colback picks up a hefty £40,000 per week, being more than several first team players, providing another reason why the club are desperate to move the unwanted midfielder  on.

Not only would it reduce the club’s wage bill, any fee earned for Colback could go towards Rafa’s transfer kitty this winter – and he might need all the help he can get on that front if Ashley is still at the helm and continues to penny pinch.

  1. Neither Leeds no B/ham will pay his £40k wages so unless he agrees to go on loan he stayes..

    It’s really shocking how someone so promising can fall down the pecking order so quickly, but this is the new life under ruthless Rafa..
