Bolton revive bid for Newcastle's Barton

Bolton Wanderers boss Gary Megson is to try again for Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton.

The People says Megson is ready to make an improved £3millon bid for Barton.

Megson's first offer was rejected but Bolton hope Newcastle will use the extra £1m on a golden handshake to tempt Barton, 26, to move.

He is on a sky-high salary at the Toon where he has three-and-half-years to run.

He might take a drop in pay to play for the right club, but Newcastle would have to help make the sums work.
