Queens Park Rangers assistant coach Kevin Bond has admitted that he would not be surprised if Joey Barton left the club before transfer deadline day.

The 30-year-old midfielder has expressed his desire to return to France following a loan spell with Marseille last season, while Everton are also reported to be interested in a move.

When asked if Barton could leave Loftus Road, Bond told reporters: "I really don't know. Nothing would surprise me."

Barton joined QPR from Newcastle United in the summer of 2011 on a free transfer.
