Newcastle manager preparing to offload experienced duo

BenitezThe Newcastle United fans who are gathered at the dartboard in The Transfer Tavern are discussing reports that an experienced duo could be set for a summer exit.

Football Insider is reporting that Newcastle manager Rafael Benitez has lost all patience with Steven Taylor and Fabricio Coloccini and is looking to offload them at the end of the season.

Taylor is out of contract at the end of June and the chance of him being offered a new deal are non existent, as for Coloccini he has year left on his current but due to the number of injury problems the player has had since February, Benitez is looking to get the Argentine moved on this summer.

It remains to be seen if Newcastle are a Premier League side but a good result at Anfield has given the fans hope that they can keep their top flight status come the end of the season.

Those Geordie fans in The Tavern think it would be the right time for both players to leave this summer and are fully behind Benitez whatever he decides to do.
