Newcastle, England:

Midfielder Joey Barton signed a five-year contract with Newcastle on Thursday in a transfer worth $11.4 million.

Barton left Manchester City after a string of disciplinary problems - the latest coming in May when he allegedly attacked his teammate Ousmane Dabo at a training session.
