Newcastle linked with shock move for Liverpool flop

Newcastle United could be set to swap one South American centre back for another, as the Daily Star is reporting that Liverpool’s could be the man to replace seemingly outgoing Magpies captain Fabricio Coloccini.

With the signing of Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa looking like it’s in the bag, Newcastle may still be on the lookout for another centre back if Coloccini heads back to Argentina.

While it would be a massive shock, Coates could well benefit from a change of scenery having failed to impress at Liverpool since signing from Nacianol for £7 million 18 months ago.

Coates simply can’t get a look in at Anfield, with Daniel Agger and Martin Skrtel Brendan Rodgers’ preferred centre back pairing.

The 22-year-old would be available at a cut down price and at 6ft 5in tall wouldn’t lose too many aerial battles.

He already has nine caps for Uruguay to his name and as the Best Young Player in the 2011 Copa America, he definitely has plenty of potential.

However, seeing as the article claimed that Liverpool were looking to move Coates on to raise funds for Wesley Sneijder, who only today joined Galatasary, then this transfer rumour could be a non-starter.

He’s not French either!

    Read the headline and thought that Downing was going.
    Oh well can but hope, maybe we can chuck him in as part of the deal for Coates.

    Hey lads lets get real,this guy coates is wanting to play good football wherever he is,he would be a great aquisition to any team,im sure a relagetion fight would show his true worth,esp if we stayed up,this would surely give the lad confidence.
