McClatchy has left an online advertising partnership with Tribune and Gannett to join a rival group of publishers that is in the final stages of negotiating a deal with Yahoo, The Wall Street Journal reported on its Web site on Thursday.

A final agreement on the Yahoo deal could be announced next week, the paper said, citing unnamed sources.
