Newcastle pair Shelvey and Darlow in alleged 3am street brawl

Newcastle United pair Jonjo Shelvey and Karl Darlow have reportedly been snapped in a in a street fight.

The Daily Mail says Darlow is alleged to have kicked a man in the back during a brawl outside a Northumberland takeaway after an argument involving team-mate Shelvey.

The fracas in Morpeth kicked off when the millionaire midfielder responded to the 'bald c***' taunt by telling his abuser: 'Go back to your council house, you peasant'.

The fight came just ten hours before the squad flew to China for the troubled Premier League club's pre-season tour, which began with a 4-0 thrashing by Wolves yesterday.

Newcastle's highest paid player, who earns £70,000-a-week, had been in a takeaway when he was allegedly verbally abused about his lack of hair.
