Sky Bet Championship side Burnley have confirmed the signing of free-agent midfielder Joey Barton on a one-year deal.

The 32-year-old was a free agent following his release from QPR at the end of last season when they were relegated, alongside the Clarets, out of the Barclays Premier League.

One-time England cap Barton was linked with West Ham but recently revealed he was not joining the Hammers and has opted for a move back to the north west instead.

"I'm delighted that we have Joey on board," said Clarets boss Sean Dyche.

"He was very respectful when speaking about our club at the end of last season and during the summer.

"We had many conversations and he made it clear he was very interested in what we are about and that coming here was something he would consider.

"He is player who is in demand and who others think highly of. I know there is other stuff to his life and character, but on the pitch I think everyone speaks well of him and he is certainly someone who I think can get the culture and the understanding of what we do here."
