Kevin Bond has threatened he will sue the BBC.

Bond’s solicitor Kevin Price said in a statement: ‘My client will be taking proceedings for libel against the BBC over the programme and the media hype generated to publicise it.

‘The short extract from my client’s conversation with the reporter was taken out of context and presented in a completely misleading manner.

‘It was all smoke and mirrors. It seems that my client was only included because after one year of working on the programme the producers were struggling to fill the one-hour slot.’

Kevin Bond is thought to be likely to quit Newcastle with the club staying quiet.
