Bolton to launch £2m bid for Barton

Barton is set to leave Newcastle following an angry dressing room bust-yp with manager Alan Shearer after the game against Liverpool.

The 26-year-old has hold clear-the-air talks with Newcastle bosses, but it is still believed Barton will leave this summer.

Barton joined the Magpies in a £5.8million deal from Manchester City in 2007.
