According to The Sun Portsmouth manager Tony Adams is on the verge of offering £4 million for Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton.

The Ex-Manchester City midfielder has just recently returned to action for the Magpies, and Joe Kinnear is thought to be an admirer of the England man.

At this point a sale is unlikely, as the Toon want atleast £6 million for the player, with Pompey unlikely to increase their bid.
