QPR make Barton move

24 August 2011 12:30

Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton has been given permission to speak to QPR.

It is understood the London club have made an approach for the 28-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract at St James' Park, and have been told they can talk to the player.

Barton was made available for a free transfer earlier this summer after criticising the club's recruitment policy via his Twitter account.
