Joey Barton Threatens Newcastle United

Newcastle United contract rebel Joey Barton has threatened to run down his contract at St James’s Park, the board at Newcastle made Barton available on a free transfer on Monday and now the midfielder has suggested on his twitter page that may sit tight and let his contract run down.

Barton wrote on his twitter page: "Just because ur told to jump, it does not necessarily mean u have to. I may choose to stand perfectly still. It's my right...just a thought."

Barton was forced to train alone yesterday and there has been some strange going-ons at Newcastle recently, selling their best players.

Newcastle saw Andy Carroll sold to Liverpool last season for £35 million and Kevin Nolan joined West Ham in the Championship this summer.

It is also reported that Jose Enrique could be on his way to Liverpool, Newcastle owner Mike Ashley and his board seem hell-bent on sending Newcastle down this coming season by off-loading their best players.

Barton, a former Manchester City player was voted Newcastle’s player of the season last year and to place him on a free transfer seems madness.

Arsenal, Celtic and Tottenham are all reportedly interested in securing the services of Joe Barton.

Barton was yesterday fined two-weeks wages for voicing his opinions on twitter at Newcastle owners.

You have to feel sorry for the Newcastle fans watching their club being ripped apart.
