Newcastle are set to travel to the States on Sunday, but Barton - who was given a six-month jail sentence after admitting assault and affray in 2008 - will now have to travel with the reserve side to the Netherlands on July 20.

Barton said in a statement on Newcastle's official website: "Unfortunately, I was denied my visa due to my past.

"I regret not being able to travel with the club on this trip, but at the same time, I don't expect to be treated any differently or more favourably than anyone else in a similar situation.

"All I can do is continue to improve as a person, which is what I intend to do.

"Again, apologies to all the NUFC supporters - as well as the fast growing legions of football supporters in the United States who I was looking forward to meeting. I will see you in the future."

He added on Twitter: "They told me am not allowed in until I have 5yrs without any trouble. 3yrs down, 2yrs to go...........

"Totally hypocrisy considering what they get up to but rules are rules.........

"I cant be bothered dwelling on negative's, this is my last post about the visa situation."
