Newcastle's Joey Barton is set to face showdown talks with club bosses over his future on his release from prison.

He was spared a second spell in jail on Monday when he was given a four-month suspended sentence for attacking former Manchester City team-mate Ousmane Dabo.

The midfielder is currently serving a six-month prison sentence for assault but may be released in the coming days.

Prior to Monday's sentencing, agent Willie McKay said Barton, 25, could be back for pre-season training next week.

"We can't really say too much until Joey is released, but we will be sitting down and talking about his future," said McKay on Tuesday.

"He will be aiming to be back for pre-season training next week. But again, we will see what happens.

"Joey had a great end to the season and has kept himself in great shape.

"In fact, he is in the best shape I have ever seen him in and I think he will be fitter than anybody else."
