Joey Barton says that a move to Crystal Palace is not the right one for him at this time.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has revealed that he has turned down an offer to sign for Crystal Palace.

The 30-year-old, who spent last year on loan at Ligue 1 side Marseille, has started in all four games in the Championship this season, with the Hoops still unbeaten.

Despite being on the lookout for a new club, the once-capped England international could not be lured by the prospect of Premier League football at Selhurst Park by manager Ian Holloway.

When asked about a move to Selhurst Park, Barton replied: "They tried but it's not the right move for me and my family right now.

"Hope they stay up as I like Holloway."

West Ham United are also believed to be considering an offer.
