The Newcastle United Football Club have now issued a statement concerning Joey Barton.
The statement read as follows on the Newcastle United web site:
Newcastle United officials can confirm they have met with Joey Barton today (July 29th) following which it has been agreed by everyone involved that Joey will remain with the Club.
The Club will not be making any further comment on the matter.
This is not too surprising, since we feel that if the club was going to sack Joey, they would have done it by now. However, whether this is the right thing to do is another matter, and this will not come as good news to lots of Newcastle fans.
Please let us know what you feel about his in our latest poll – should Newcastle be keeping Joey Barton?
