Joey Barton: Controversial midfielder back with Burnley

After a tumultuous time at Rangers, the controversial Joey Barton has returned to Burnley on a free transfer. The deal will last until the end of the season.

As reported by Reuters:

“Joey Barton has made a swift return to Burnley after the midfielder agreed to rejoin the club until the end of the season on a free transfer in January, the Premier League side said on its website.

The 34-year-old, who has been training at the club’s training ground since his release from Scottish side Rangers in November, turned down a new contract at Burnley in May after helping them win the Championship title last season.

“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,” Burnley said in a statement.”
