Newcastle chief Freddie Shepherd today blasted Kieron Dyer's agent Jonathan Barnett.

The Toon chairman was outraged after Barnett said Inter Milan, AC Milan and Barcelona were battling to sign the England star, 22.

Furious Shepherd told the Newcastle Evening Chronicle: "Kieron Dyer has three years of his contract remaining with us and it is our intention to keep him here and then see how things go after that.

"If Dyer's agent has said these things he is totally out of order.

"It has left the Newcastle United board very annoyed. This agent does not own Kieron Dyer. He is under contract to Newcastle United for the next three seasons.

"The agent should mind his own business and keep his nose out of ours.

"Kieron Dyer is not going anywhere. He is not for sale - end of story."

Dyer has also been linked to a £20 million move to Manchester United and Leeds.
