​Fleetwood appoint Joey Barton as new manager

League One Fleetwood Town have announced that ex-Manchester City and Burnley midfielder Joey Barton will become their new head coach in June, replacing John Sheridan.

The 35-year-old, who most recently played for Premier League side Burnley, is approaching the end of a suspension for a charge related to betting.

"I'm very excited by the challenge," ex-England midfielder Barton, who will take his first managerial role, said.
