Loftus Road man makes Ligue 1 move.
Given that QPR have signed a number of players who could work out as effective replacements for the banned midfielder Joey Barton was always likely to be on his way out at Loftus Road and now a deal to send the 29 year old to Marseille on a season long loan deal is in place.
The former Man City & Newcastle United man didn’t have the best of seasons at QPR last term and the 12 match ban handed to the one time England international after his last day meltdown at the Etihad effectively ended his Super Hoops career.
Barton will hope to re-ignite his career at the Stade Velodrome and one can expect the odd French tweet from the Twitter obsessed misfit as he embarks on his Ligue 1 adventure.
