Newcastle United captain Fabricio Coloccini is set to stay at the club until at least the end of the season.

The 31-year-old had been linked with a January move back to his native Argentina after reportedly telling the Magpies he has personal problems. San Lorenzo had also publicly declared their interest in the player.

However, Newcastle boss Alan Pardew has today confirmed that his captain will remain on Tyneside for the foreseeable future.

Bordeaux are understood to have rejected a bid from Newcastle United for striker Yoan Gouffran.

French newspapers have reported that the Magpies made an offer of around 750,000 euros (£630,000) for the 26-year-old, which was turned down. It's believed the Ligue 1 side have put a price tag of one million euros on the France Under-21 international, who has six months remaining on his contract.

Gouffran, who joined Bordeaux from Caen in 2008, has scored 11 goals in 22 games this season.
