Alan Pardew believes Joey Barton will stay on at Newcastle next season, with the manager hinting that at some point this year, a new contract may still be agreed upon.

"I have spoken to Joey over the summer. Unfortunately at the moment there is no new contract for him," Pardew told the Evening Chronicle.

"He has a year remaining and I think he will stay for that year. My view of it is quite open-ended.


"I think, like a lot of players, that yearly term contracts in the Premier League are going to be the norm. But who is to say that in a year's time that Joey gets a contract that he finds acceptable?"

Pardew countered the rumours that Barton won’t get another contract with Newcastle next season, telling the local paper that he believes the midfield star will improve on his successful spell at St James’ Park.

“I am hoping he will play better than last year, I don’t see why he shouldn’t,” Pardew said. “He really had a fantastic season last year.”
