Joey Barton set for Ligue 1 stay

Joey Barton – Marseille Irrespective of where QPR end up next season, Joey Barton is expecting to make his loan move to Marseille a permanent deal.

The controversial midfielder has been on loan at the French club for the entire season and he is loving life in France and says an agreement between the two sides is already in place.

Barton, who was handed a 12-match ban for his actions on the final day of last season at Manchester City, tweeted: “It’s not up to QPR if I stay. [There is an] agreement already in place for me to stay.

“I’m loving life in France. Loving Marseille. They love me.

“I can’t see QPR wanting me on the wage bill in the Championship.

“All I want to do is give everything for this football club [Marseille]. They backed me when nobody else did. For that I will be eternally grateful. This club is now in my blood, its impossible to get it out.”
