Blackpool have rejected the chance to take QPR midfielder Joey Barton on-loan.

Blackpool have rejected the chance to take QPR midfielder Joey Barton on-loan.

The Sunday Mirror says Blackpool have rejected the chance to sign QPR misfit Barton on a season-long loan.

Barton, 29, spent pre-season with the Championship side's League Two neighbours Fleetwood Town.

But while Rangers were ­willing to subsidise most of his £80,000-a-week wages, their offer was rejected by the ­Seasiders.

The Bloomfield Road club did not think it made financial sense to sign a player who must first serve a 12-game ban.
