News Of The World: "Newcastle are ready to ditch the three flops Dennis Wise persuaded the club to splash out £21million on last year.

"Fabricio Coloccini, Jonas Gutierrez and Xisco are all out of St James' Park once the season ends.

"Wise, who was axed as director of football when Alan Shearer arrived this month, was behind the deals - signings which led to Kevin Keegan quitting as boss in September.

"Toon owner Mike Ashley is also getting rid of technical co-ordinator Jeff Vetere and chief scout Lil Fuccillo.

"Argentine defender Coloccini, 27, cost £10.5m from Deportivo but has been dropped by new boss Shearer.

"Fellow Argie Gutierrez, 26, was supposed to be free but Ashley ended up paying £5m for the midfielder.

"And striker Xisco, 22, has started just three Premier League games since his £5.7m switch from Depo."
