QUEENS Park Rangers has agreed to loan out Joey Barton to Marseille, but that all depends on if the French club’s defender Stephane Mbia moves to QPR.
“This option has attracted Joey’s enthusiasm so hopefully it is concluded,” QPR manager Mark Hughes told reporters.
Mbia is taking a medical and Barton is waiting for an agreement between the Cameroon international and QPR.
Barton has already taken his medical in Marseille and has had a light training session.
