Joey Barton wants new Queens Park Rangers contract

Joey Barton says that he wants to extend his current contract with Queens Park Rangers.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has admitted that he would "love" to sign a new contract with the club.

Reports emerged over the weekend claiming that the 31-year-old would be offered an extension to his current deal, which is due to expire next summer.

Barton helped the club to win promotion from the Championship last season, after a spell on loan at Marseille, and he has revealed that he is enjoying his time in West London.

"I'd love to [sign a new deal]," Sky Sports News quotes Barton as saying.

"I'm settled. I'm settled in the area and my family are settled. I love playing for the club and think I'm improving as a player. Why wouldn't I want to stay? But that's out of my hands."

Barton played the full 90 minutes of QPR's 1-0 defeat to Hull City at the weekend.
