Newcastle United are targeting a summer move for Celtic defender Kelvin Wilson to replace the unsettled Fabricio Coloccini, according to a report.

The Magpies skipper is currently out of action due to a back injury but was linked with a return to his native Argentina during the January transfer window.

The Mirror reports that Alan Pardew is eyeing a move for Wilson after putting in a series of impressive performances for the Bhoys this season.

Newcastle coach Steve Stone reportedly watched the 27-year-old, who is valued in the region of £5m, in action against St Mirren.
