Blues chasing bad boy Barton?

According to newspaper reports this morning, Birmingham City manager Alex McLeish is keen to take Joey Barton off Newcastle`s hands.

Speculation has it that McLeish is keen on a deal but just an initial season long loan with an option of buying after.

Barton had been suspended indefinitely by Alan Shearer at the end of last season but, with Newcastle still managerless, he has been allowed to resume pre-season training.

However, if and when Shearer finally takes charge his first act will be to move Barton on.

Birmingham could offer a mutually satisfactory escape route but the midfielder`s wages of around 65,000 a week could represent a stumbling block as Newcastle would prefer a clean break.

Lord help you if you sign this over-rated psychopathic little *****. He is not a BAD player, but he is total scum and will ruin your dressing room. Don't touch with a barge pole.
