In dire need of a boost, Newcastle United could welcome back two of their more important players - Fabricio Coloccini and Cheik Tiote - against Aston Villa.

Both players are doubts, but their return would help steady a team that has shipped 10 goals in their last three matches.

Newcastle captain, Fabricio Coloccini, faces another spell on the sidelines after damaging his knee's medial ligaments against West Brom.

Coloccini could miss six weeks, and is a huge loss for the Magpies. Steven Taylor, or more likely, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, will deputize alongside Mike Williamson.

Fabricio Coloccini could be available for selection this weekend, as Newcastle look to beat another London team, this time against Spurs at White Hart Lane.

Despite keeping a clean sheet against Chelsea last weekend, the Magpies would welcome their captain's return.

In a shocking repudiation of recent reports, Newcastle manager Alan Pardew declared that Fabricio Coloccini had an outside chance of making the weekend's derby match.

Coloccini was reported to be out until Christmas, but he is running, if not training, with the first team. Pardew won't risk his captain so it still seems unlikely that Coloccini will play this weekend, but it's still quite a change of fortune for the defender.

Fabricio Coloccini, who had already ruled out of the weekend's Tyne-Wear derby, is now expected to be out through Christmas.

Coloccini injured his groin on international duty and Newcastle is now discovering the true extent of the injury. The Magpies' defensive lynchpin will miss around ten matches and it will be up to Steven Taylor, and increasingly less likely, Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa to fill the void.

Newcastle United manager Alan Pardew has ruled skipper Fabricio Coloccini out of the weekend's big derby against Sunderland.

Coloccini is still nursing a groin injury he picked up on international duty with Argentina. While Mathieu Debuchy performed admirably against Liverpool after Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa was shown a red card, it will be Steven Taylor who will partner Mike Williamson at the back against Sunderland.

Club captain Fabricio Coloccini is a major doubt for Newcastle's match against Liverpool after withdrawing from the Argentina squad with a muscle injury.

Coloccini was expected to face Luis Suarez's Uruguay but is now back in Newcastle to find out the extent of his injury. Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa, or possibly Steven Taylor, will likely partner Mike Williamson this weekend.

A done deal for FC Twente's Brazillian defender Douglas was nixed by new Director of Football, Joe Kinnear, who had never heard of the player.

Newcastle need to improve their center-back options, especially with Fabricio Coloccini still unsettled at the club. This bureaucratic power-play has already caused one resignation from Newcastle's highly regarded scouting staff, and could well lead to more turmoil at a club that can hardly afford more drama.

Fabricio Coloccini has been ordered to return for pre-season training despite remaining unsettled in England.

With his family in Argentina, Coloccini understandably wants to return home. Hopefully Newcastle can avoid a Carlos Tevez-style distraction, but one could become unavoidable. Coloccini has been Newcastle's stand-out defender for several seasons now and they will need him to be healthy and focused.
