According to exclusive reports in the Daily Mirror Newcastle bad boy Joey Barton could make a shock move to Celtic.

It had been thought that the 28 year old was on his way to London with both Spurs and Arsenal interested in his services, although according to the news story Spurs have distanced themselves from the midfielder after Barton was fined two weeks wages and told to train alone yesterday for his outspoken comments on Twitter regarding Newcastle.

That said Spurs are still interested as are Everton and Aston Villa are keen to talk to the free agent.

Barton is thought to want close to £70,000 a week, and while that hefty salary could potentially deter Celtic manager Neil Lennon it hasn’t stopped the Parkhead outfit for making initial enquiries.
