Marseille coach Elie Baup does not know whether Joey Barton will return to the club for the upcoming campaign.

Barton, who enjoyed a season-long loan spell with the Ligue 1 club, remains contracted to Championship side QPR and Baup is unsure if the midfielder will head back to France.

However, the 58-year-old is keen to sign Barton on a permanent basis.

“Joey Barton’s comeback? I do not know how it will evolve,” he told L’Equipe.

“The club and the player agreed about the challenge ahead, but he still belongs to QPR.”

Barton himself has spoken of his desire to return to Marseille following a stint that saw him make 28 starts in all competitions in France.

The former Newcastle United and Manchester City player, 30, still has two years left on his current deal at Loftus Road.
