Football Transfer Centre

Temperamental midfielder Joey Barton could be on the cusp of a shock return to Ligue 1 giants Marseille after reports from France suggested the club were weighing up a move for the midfielder. Barton's future in British football hangs in the balance after more off the field problems at Scottish club Rangers.

Barton has always stressed that he particularly enjoyed his time in Ligue 1 and had unfinished business at the club.

The midfielder is desperate to get back on the pitch and his agent is currently attempting to broker a deal for his next move.
