Marseille coach Elie Baup has confirmed the club are in talks with QPR midfielder Joey Barton, but that a move has yet to be agreed.

The 29-year-old has been linked with a loan move to the Ligue 1 outfit in recent weeks, having been frozen out at Loftus Road. Rangers manager Mark Hughes did not even give him a squad number for this season following his red card against Manchester City on the last day of last term, and subsequent 12-match ban.

Barton flew to France on Wednesday and Baup told OM's website: "Joey Barton is in the building. I don't know if it will be finalised today or how it will turn out."
