QPR midfielder Joey Barton is being linked with Blackpool.
A loan move to Fleetwood Town was ruled out by their manager Micky Mellon.
Barton said on Twitter: "Fleetwood adventure is over. I loved every minute of it. Great club. Good luck to @capboy70 (Fleetwood chairman Andy Pilley), Mickey and a great set of lads for the season."
Mellon, though, could not shed any light, as he said: "I do not know anything about any clubs. That will be up to Joey and QPR now."
