Joey Barton’s agent fails to convince Marseille

Willie McKay has recently held talks with Marseille President Vincent Labrune over the possible signing of his client Joey Barton whose contract expires at the end of the season.

Speaking to the Daily Mail, Labrune confirmed that this had occurred, but that he was not interested in bringing Barton back to Marseille on account of his high wage demands:

“The agent called me last week to offer me Joey for next year but I don’t think so.”
