Joey Barton turns down Crystal Palace move

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton reveals that he has turned down the chance to join Crystal Palace.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has revealed that he turned down the opportunity to join Crystal Palace this summer.

The 30-year-old, who spent last season on loan at Marseille, has been widely linked with a move away from Loftus Road before September 2.

However, despite interest from Premier League side Palace, the experienced midfielder admitted that it was "not the right move".

He tweeted: "They tried but its not the right move for me and my family right now. Hope they stay up as I like Holloway."

Barton is expected to remain with the R's until at least January.
