Newcastle field interest for Barton

Newcastle United are confident of finding a buyer for Joey Barton.

The Journal says with three years left on his contract and terminating it an expensive option few football clubs are even willing to consider, the obvious question is who would buy Barton. His talent is unquestionable but the baggage which comes with him is immense. Injuries and suspension have limited him to just six Premier League starts this season.

The Magpies, though, have had enquiries for the player and are confident of finding a buyer in the summer.
