Coloccini A Weight On Ashley's Shoulders?

However, it was mighty strange yesterday when Kevin Keegan says three signings are likely before the start of the season, but he is refusing to reveal whether Argentine Fabricio Coloccini has joined the club.

Deportivo La Coruna have agreed a deal to sell the 26-year-old to Newcastle, the Newcastle owner has the player's name across his shoulders ... yet KK does not seem to know if the player has signed or not.

Keegan: "I can't tell you anything at the moment.

"He was here, that's for sure. I like his hair, it's like mine in the seventies, but I can't tell you any more than that.

"I'd like to think that once [the Coloccini deal] is completed then two more players will arrive, and then we'll see what happens.

"I think there'll be a lot of comings and goings late on as clubs try to re-balance and somebody will come available who will be of interest.

"I think we'll be in there pitching just like everybody else."
