Despite playing in Sunday's 3-2 friendly defeat by Leeds United, Joey Barton has been told by Newcastle United's board that he can leave St James' Park on a free transfer
Are Newcastle mental?! He was their best player last season. I'm probably gona get stick from a few fellow United fans but I would actually like to see him play for us. Regardless of his past, I think he's a great midfielder and he reminds me very much of Roy Keane. (But obviously Sniejder, Nasri or Modric would be my preferred choices)
