Barton keen on Everton switch

Queens Park Rangers midfielder Joey Barton has offered his services to hometown club Everton as he looks to secure a move away from Loftus Road, according to the Mirror.

The boyhood Toffees fan is so keen to secure a move to Goodison Park that he has offered to take a fifty per cent pay cut on his £70,000 per week wages.

Barton is currently with Harry Redknapp’s side having spent a year on loan with Ligue 1 side Marsielle, and could feature in the Hoops opening game of the season against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.

However, the 30 year old has made contact with Everton manager Roberto Martinez to see if he would be willing to sign him.

The controversial player was linked with a move to the Blue half of Merseyside on a number of occasions during David Moyes’ tenure with finances often the stumbling block, though Barton himself could now help to make it happen.

His last match in England was the final game of the 2011/12 campaign, where he was sent off against would be champions Manchester City, firstly for elbowing Carlos Tevez before givng Sergio Aguero a dead leg.

He then aimed a head-butt at City captain Vincent Kompany, all leading to the one-time England international receiving a twelve match ban from the Football Association.
