Antoine Sibierski: "Joey and me were big pals when we were both at Manchester City. So it came as no surprise when he contacted me this week and asked me whether I thought going to Newcastle United was the right move for him.

"I told him `Joey, you must sign for Newcastle United'. And that this was too good an opportunity for him to miss.

"I was only there for a short time, but I found it to be a great club with great supporters. And I told Joey that he could win some things with them in the next few seasons.

"So this is a good deal for Joey but it is also a good deal for Newcastle as he is a fantastic player.

"I know that certain things have happened, but I think that when Joey does arrive at Newcastle they will find that he has matured a lot.

"I am already sad at leaving Newcastle United and I don't want to think about this (playing alongside Barton) because I know that it is not going to happen.
But that's life, and I want to wish Newcastle United and their fans all the best for the future."
