Joey Barton claims he wants to stay at Newcastle but has not been offered a new deal at St James' Park.
The midfielder still has a year remaining on his contract with the Toon, but has been linked with a move away from the Tyneside club this summer after his agent, Willie McKay, revealed this week that his client would not be offered a new deal.
Speaking on the Twitter account he launched earlier this week, Barton said he would remain committed to Newcastle for as long as the club want him.
"Finished playing golf, 72 not bad. Came in to questions about joining Everton??? I don't want to leave Newcastle but thanks anyways........" Barton wrote.
"I cant sign a contract if am not offered one?"
He then continued on the topic, appearing to mock the club's transfer policy before stopping himself.
"I will tell all when the time is right, basically they want a younger, better, cheaper player............cant blame (owner Mike Ashley) and (managing director Derek Llambias) can you?" he said.
".......slight problem is, they dont want to spend any money or pay any wages. Its genius really ha ha
"I am an employee so have to be careful here. Everyone knows i'd love to stay, i get on with (manager Alan Pardew) fine and are dressing room is 1st class..
"If am not offered a new contract, my hands are tied. I will continue to do everything in my power to bring a trophy to St James next season."
