Football League would block Barton loan

Published Add your comment

The Football League would block QPR's Joey Barton joining one of its clubs on loan, Press Association Sport understands.

The 29-year-old is subject of a 12-match ban after he was sent off on the final day of last season at Manchester City and was later found guilty of two counts of violent conduct by the Football Association.

QPR had reportedly hoped to send the midfielder out on loan to a Football League club as his ban would be served quicker due to the volume of games played. However, Press Association Sport understands the body would oppose any such move and would refuse to register him while his ban remains.
