Barton’s current contract with QPR runs out at the end of the season, and no new deal is in place.
With QPR having already been relegated from the Premier League, there is little to play for the players in the final two rounds of matches.
However, Barton has insisted that he will give his all for Rangers against Newcastle United at Loftus Road on Saturday and against Leicester City away from home at the King Power Stadium next weekend.
The former Newcastle United midfielder has also responded to Marseille president Vincent Labrune’s claims in The Daily Mail that the 32-year-old’s agent spoke to him about moving to OM in the summer transfer window.
I have 100% focus on QPR and always will until told otherwise. When the time is right we will sit down and discuss the future.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
First I've heard of a conversation between President Labrune and my agent today. Never had a clue that it happened till I read it today.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
I am still of the belief that if you're part of a team that goes down. You should try to help them back up. But that decision is not mine.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
We have two games left to play this season and it's important we respond to abject performance in the right manner.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
A lot of people talking on here like they've been involved in contract/transfer negotiations. Not sure how when you work in Sainsbury's.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
Remember Football Manager isn't reality. Stick to picking your Fantasy Football team. Leave the real stuff to those paid to do it... 's— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 15, 2015
Barton has been on the books of QPR since 2011, when he joined the London outfit on a free transfer after leaving Newcastle.
In 26 Premier League appearances for Rangers this season, the former Manchester City midfielder has scored one goal and created 53 chances, while having a pass accuracy of 74% and a shot accuracy of 27%.
