Published Add your comment

Joey Barton has given his word to Newcastle United after being made to feel "wanted" by manager Sam Allardyce, chairman Freddy Shepherd and prospective owner Mike Ashley.

The 24-year-old Manchester City midfielder is expected to complete a £5.5million move to St James´ Park on Wednesday once the remaining administrative details are finalised.

He told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle: "I have given my word to Newcastle United and that is where I hope I will be going. Everybody knows they are a club of great history and tradition - and that is great - but what has also been great for me is that they have pushed the boat out for me, and both Freddy Shepherd and Sam Allardyce have made me feel so wanted."
