QPR midfielder Joey Barton has urged Michael Owen to make the move to Loftus Road.

Off contract from Manchester United, Owen is in talks with Stoke City.

But bad-boy Barton tweeted Owen: “@themichaelowen get down the smoke mate. If u come here we could sort out ur gear. If u sign for us, I'll even take u shopping... Haha."

The Rs have already signed two of Owen's former teammates, Park Ji-sung and Fabio da Silva.
