Joey Barton was busy dribbling away on his Twitter account yesterday, chiding fans who were baiting him over having to play in the Championship after returning to parent club QPR at the end of the season by claiming that he has a deal in place with Marseille that will see him retained by the Ligue 1 club next year.
“Some strange people think that I’ll be playing in the Championship next season?? Good one! QPR might, I won’t! #fact”
“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.”
