Transfer news: Joey Barton will not be joining Fleetwood
QPR midfielder Joey Barton’s short term future is uncertain after it was revealed that he would not be signing for League Two side Fleetwood Town.
The 29-year-old is banned for 12 matches and it has been believed that he will go out on loan until January, at the earliest.
“Joey has gone back to QPR,” Fleetwood manager Micky Mellon told Sky Sports. “His influence in and around the football club was nothing more than fantastic.
“(He was) a great lad, up to standard for us, players saw how hard you have to work to be a Premier League footballer.
“Nothing but positives came from the time we had with Joey. We always knew it was going to come to an end at some stage.
“We did try and get him on loan. QPR did not want to do that. He has gone back to QPR and we wish Joey all the best. He will always be a friend of this football club.”
