Barton to Owls rumours gather pace

Barton to Owls rumours gather pace

Rumours linking Wednesday with a loan move for QPR midfielder Joey Barton are gaining momentum.

Reports linking the Owls with the former Manchester City and Newcastle United man first surfaced last week and are now gathering pace.

Wednesday boss Dave Jones has been questioned over the links and although refusing to confirm any approach to the Loftus Road club, he said Barton's reputation wouldn't put him off bringing him to Hillsborough.

He said: 'I wouldn't be frightened of bringing him here if he became available.'

QPR are understood to be keen to loan the 29-year-old out next season, with Nottingham Forest and Blackburn Rovers also reported to be keen on his services.

Any club taking on the midfielder would have to be patient - Barton will miss the first 12 games of next season through a suspension following his involvement in the end-of-season fracas at Manchester City.

I'm not in favour of big name signings, especially one like this. He would be disruptive on so many levels.

QPR are only loaning him out so he will completes his 12 match ban quicker. He wont play a game for whoever he signs for and concidering he a totall**** i would want him within 100 miles of our club, unless it was bumhole lane.

Agree with Carbone,I detest the bloke with a passion. Would be devastated if he was to wear our shirt. Please stay hundreds of miles away from us.

I agree with MO. I reckon this a nonsense story being blown out of proportion to fill the news until the new season starts. Having a banned Barton gives us no benefit at all on any level. I'm more concerned about this Kirkland story and if there is any truth in it. If true then Bywaters been pretty steady and Kirkland loses all respect from me.

Why would anyone take a player on loan who'll miss at least a quarter of the season, then they'll be further bans. Barton should be out of footbaall
