Marseille interested in Barton deal

Published Add your comment

Marseille are interested in signing controversial QPR midfielder Joey Barton, Press Association Sport understands.

The 29-year-old's future with the west Londoners has been the subject of much debate this summer after he was stripped of the captaincy and given a 12-match FA ban for his red card and subsequent conduct on the final day of last season at Manchester City.

Barton spent pre-season training with Fleetwood, but would not be able to join npower League Two newboys on loan as it is understood the Football League would refuse to register him while his ban remains.
