Barton wants Newcastle stay

Despite his contract row, Joey Barton is not planning to quit Newcastle United.

Barton is currently on holiday in Las Vegas, but has every intention of being back at the club's Benton base on July 4 to see out the remaining year on his contract.

A source close to Barton told the Evening Chronicle: "Joey is only interested in one thing - remaining at Newcastle United. That's one thing that is unlikely to change.

"He's aiming to have a season just like the last one, but hopefully help Newcastle achieve an even higher finish and do something in the cups."
