According to the latest report on Sky Sport News, Newcastle bad boy Joey Barton could be set to make a late exit today from St. James Park.
The report claims that an unnamed club is currently in talks with Newcastle for the services of the midfielder. The only information released regarding the clubs identity was that it was one of the top ten finishers in the Prem last year.
Speculation is rife that it could be Everton but no confirmation has been given from the club.
Barton made 24 appearances in all competitions for Newcastle last season after signing for Ã‚Â£5.8 million from todayÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s headline making club Ã¢â‚¬â€œ Manchester City Ã¢â‚¬â€œ last summer.
However his off-the-pitch affairs have made him a poster boy for rebellion in English football. Kevin Keegan recently gave him the vote of confidence for this coming season offering him Ã¢â‚¬Å“one more chanceÃ¢â‚¬Â and even bringing him in late in this weekendÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s loss to Arsenal.
