Barton Deal Agreed for Burnley Return

20 December 2016

Joey Barton is set to re-sign for Burnley.

The Clarets have agreed terms with the midfielder on a deal until the end of the season – subject to international clearance once the transfer window opens in January.

Barton, 34, has been training with the Clarets to build up his fitness after leaving Glasgow Rangers in mid-November.

His impending return to Turf Moor will see the former Manchester City, Newcastle and Queens Park Rangers player resume a Burnley career which last season saw him help Sean Dyche’s side win the Championship title.

Barton – who initially joined the Clarets as a free agent in August, 2015 – was named Burnley’s Player of the Year as the club secured promotion to the Premier League before the former England international opted to join newly-promoted Scottish Premiership side Rangers.
