QPR midfielder Joey Barton will be offered a new lucrative contract at Loftus Road shortly, according to reports.

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton is reportedly on the brink of being offered a new £75,000-per-week deal with the West London club.

The 31-year-old is now in the final year of his contract at Loftus Road, with QPR getting their Premier League season underway with a 1-0 home defeat to Hull City on Saturday.

Nevertheless, owner Tony Fernandes is reported to be keen on rewarding Barton for helping the club win promotion from the Championship last season, according to The Mirror.

James Chester hit the only goal of the game as Harry Redknapp's side failed to mark their top-flight return in winning fashion.
