In what seems to be another drawn out NUFC transfer saga, the Joey Barton situation seems no nearer to resolving itself, with West Ham apparently set to offer him £1m more a season. You can almost see the pound signs ringing up in his agent Willy McKay`s eyes at the thought of a 10% cut of that. The Mirror talks about a quite obscene £80k a week figure being bandied about, whilst we`re only offering him the pauperly sum of £60k. What impact this will have on the Parker deal is open to question. Updates when possible?
