Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton will remain in jail after a court refused to grant him bail.

The 25-year-old appeared before Liverpool magistrates charged with assault and affray.

Barton, of Foxbank Close, Widnes, Cheshire, has been in custody since he was arrested in the early hours of December 27 in Liverpool city centre.
