Fleetwood contacted by local police over Barton investigation

Fleetwood have been contacted by local police as an investigation into alleged assault by Joey Barton on Barnsley manager Daniel Stendel continues.

The Daily Mail says officers are yet to speak to the former Manchester City player but that they have approached his club with a view to doing so.

South Yorkshire Police are investigating the claims following an alleged tunnel fracas after Barnsley's 4-2 victory over Fleetwood at Oakwell on Saturday.

They have already spoken to Stendel, who was left with damage to two teeth and who required emergency dental treatment.

Sources say that they contacted Fleetwood on Tuesday.
