Jack Raymond Colback (born 24 October 1989) is an English professional footballer who plays as a central midfielder for Nottingham Forest on loan from Newcastle United.
Colback began his career at Sunderland in 2008, having graduated from their academy, and broke into the team following loans at Ipswich Town of the Championship. After 115 Premier League appearances with Sunderland, his contract expired and he controversially moved to their local rivals, Newcastle United. However, as of 11 August 2017, his future with Newcastle United is now in doubt after he was dropped from the 25-strong Premiership squad for the 2017–2018 season.
He played once for England at Under-20 level in 2009, and was called up for the senior squad for the first time in August 2014.Close
