City bite back in Barton row

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have hit back at Sam Allardyce in the growing row over Joey Barton´s transfer to Newcastle.

City are angry that the Newcastle chief has suggested that details of Barton´s contract had been leaked by the club.

City spokesman Paul Tyrrell said: "At no time have we divulged the details of Joey´s contract, or would we ever do so with any player. It is disappointing that Sam Allardyce has chosen to make these claims public. We will continue to have a good relationship with Newcastle."
