Reyna signs, Barton to follow?

They may not be new signings being paraded but the club announced today that Claudio Reyna had signed a one year extension to his current contract, and were hoping to begin negotiations on extending Joey Barton's current deal in the next week or so.

Barton currently has eighteen months remaining on his deal, but both the club and player are believed to be keen on striking a deal which would reward his superb form this season and the also the way he has recovered from the personal setbacks he has experienced over the last year. Reyna meanwhile announced he was pleased to have signed on for another year as the club is clearly 'moving in the right direction'. Until his recent injury he was displaying some of his best form since his arrival and I think a further one year deal is more than beneficial to the club and player alike.
