Former QPR and Newcastle United midfielder Joey Barton has sent out a criticism of Premier League clubs for failing to sign him even on a free transfer.
The midfielder recently completed a free transfer move to Burnley, who play in the Championship. He was seen as one of the attractive players available on the Bosman transfer market. He had left QPR after several years at the club. His departure was almost confirmed when the club was relegated to the Championship. The huge contract that Barton was earning at Loftus Road was one of the reasons.
