Queens Park Rangers’ Joey Barton reacts on Twitter to Marseille speculation

Joey Barton insists that he is fully committed to Queens Park Rangers for their final two Premier League games of the season.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has taken to social networking site Twitter to make it clear that he is committed to the club.

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.

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%.
