Barton hits back at Arsenal chairman

Football Transfer Centre

Joey Barton has hit back at Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood, after the Gunners chief announced that no bid was made for the then Newcastle midfielder.

Joey Barton instead joined QPR, but Arsenal were rumoured to be interested in the midfielder.

“Am not going to be drawn on PHW’s comments. He obviously needs to open a dialogue channel with Wenger, Pat Rice and Steve Rowley.

“I feel I made the right move for me, am very happy at QPR and wish Arsenal, the best of luck. Everything happens for a reason, I believe."
