General dreg-end and mercenary agent Willy McKay has given his latest update on the Barton situation, revealing that us and the Hammers are interested but stating that the lynchpin of the move is Scott Parker. Obviously this will be manna from heaven for McKay in terms of the player`s wages. McKay added:

‘I believe West Ham are interested in Joey as well as Newcastle, but everything depends on the possible transfer of Scott Parker. If the clubs make an offer of £5.5million they can activate Joey’s clause in his contract. We are now waiting on offers to come in before we take things further.’
