Barton initially announced his retirement from international football in the wake of the 2014 World Cup.
Following Germany's 1-0 victory over Argentina in Sunday's final, the 31-year-old tweeted that he would be coming out of international retirement, with the aim of making his way back into Roy Hodgson's England set-up.
To date, Barton's only international cap is a 15-minute spell when England faced Spain back in 2007.
The former Manchester City midfielder announced his retirement from the Three Lions' set-up in May 2012, while representing QPR during the 2011/12 season in which the R's were relegated along with Reading and Wigan Athletic.
After reviewing England's performance at the WC, I have decided renounce my international retirement.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 14, 2014
Having seen the standard, I believe its possible. Having played at the level before I feel I am a better player now than when I was capped.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 14, 2014
People might not know whether I'm being serious or not. Trust me, I am deadly serious. Thats all I'll say on the matter for now.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 14, 2014
After a review of my reviewing process international aspirations will go on hold for the time being. Consolidating QPR in PL is No1 priority— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) July 14, 2014
Barton, 31, played a pivotal role in returning QPR to the Premier League via the play-offs, having originally said that he would not play in the Championship and was looking to make his loan move to Marseille a permanent move.
