Blackpool pass on QPR bad-boy Barton
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.
