Joey Barton has revealed he is to train with Football League newcomers Fleetwood.

The QPR midfielder was handed a 12-game suspension following his red card and subsequent violent reaction in the club's 3-2 defeat to Manchester City on the final day of the Barclays Premier League season.

On Monday night, the 29-year-old wrote on social networking website Twitter: "Looking forward to training with Fleetwood Town for the week. Will get a much needed sweat on. Still have 3 years left at QPR. Exciting times for the club, which I intended to be a part of. Need to get some fitness in the meantime."
