Pardew battling to keep Nolan at Newcastle

Newcastle United boss Alan Pardew is desperate to keep hold of Kevin Nolan.

Nolan is understood to have rejected the contract offer currently on the table just weeks after Joey Barton was told he will not be offered a new deal, says the Daily Mail.

Former Bolton player Nolan, who scored 12 Barclays Premier League goals last season, has two years remaining on his current contract, but the breakdown of talks will cause further concern amongst fans still coming to terms with Barton's situation.

Like Nolan, Barton was one of the club's most consistent performers last season as he enjoyed his best campaign to date in a Newcastle shirt, and his retention beyond the final year of his current deal was one of Pardew's priorities.
