Alan Pardew has said that he is happy to let Joey Barton’s current contract to run its course.

Alan Pardew has predicted that Joey Barton will remain at Newcastle United until his contract expires next year.

Although the manager had been keen to retain the midfielder, discussions over a new contract broke down in May.

“I have spoken to Joey over the summer. Unfortunately at the moment there is no new contract for him. He has a year remaining and I think he will stay for that year,” said Pardew, who has received no offers for the player.

“My view of it is quite open-ended. I think, like a lot of players, that yearly-term contracts in the Premier League are going to be the norm.

“But who is to say that in a year’s time that Joey gets a contract he finds acceptable?”

The 28-year-old moved to the Magpies from Manchester City in 2007 in a £5.8m deal.
