Joey Barton will discover in the next two weeks whether he has a future at QPR.

The club confirmed on Friday night they would not appeal the 12-match ban handed down in response to his sending-off and subsequent actions in the defeat to Manchester City on the final day of the Barclays Premier League season.

An internal investigation is under way at Loftus Road and it remains to be seen what additional sanctions the club will impose on their captain. A statement said: "The club expects the investigation to last at least two weeks. During this period, no one from the club or Joey Barton himself will make any further comment."
