Fabricio Coloccini has distanced himself from a move away from St James' Park.
The 31-year-old was quoted as saying that he wanted to quit the Magpies in order to join San Lorenzo last month.
Despite being tempted by a move to his boyhood club, the Argentine international said that he is happy to stay in the North East of England.
Fabricio Coloccini: "Earlier this year, for personal reasons, the possibility of returning to Argentina emerged.
"There was talk of San Lorenzo as I am a fan and because of the love that I have for the team.
"However, for now I'm good at Newcastle and I have three more years of my contract."
