Barton In Hot Water Again

Last updated : 11 April 2013 By Footy Mad - Editor

Barton, currently on loan at the French club from relegation-threatened QPR, tweeted that he would not be returning to Loftus Road next season.


"Some strange people think that I'll be playing in the Championship next season?? Good one! QPR might, I won't! #fact," he wrote.

"It's not up to QPR if I stay. Agreement already in place for me to stay here. Can't see QPR wanting me on the wage bill in the Champ."

Laubrune was quoted on as saying: "We would not be against the idea of keeping Joey Barton at OM but he belongs to QPR.

"There is no agreement as suggested by Joey Barton."

QPR chairman Tony Fernandes posted a pointed tweet:

"For the record QPR players under contract cannot decide where they play. They are under CONTRACT," Fernandes wrote.
