Joey Barton undergoing medical at West Ham with free agent set to agree contract

West Ham are discussing a deal with 32-year-old Joey Barton
Marseille and Lorient had shown interest in the free agent

By Simon Jones

West Ham are discussing a possible deal for Joey Barton with the 32-year old free agent currently undergoing a medical.

Barton had been working for TV and radio over the weekend and joked he was the best player in the ground during Saturday's game between Bournemouth and Aston Villa.

But he will now agree a contract with the Hammers after keeping himself fit over the summer.

Marseille and Lorient have shown interest in the Huyton-born midfielder who left QPR at the end of the season.

Slaven Bilic wants cover in the defensive midfield position where Reece Oxford excelled against Arsenal.

They have been in constant dialogue with Alex Song but he remains injured while Napoli's Gokhan Inler is leaning towards a move to Leicester.

Food for thought

Was this deal ever really off?

The owners treat us like idiots.

They knew Song was 2 / 3 months from fitness weeks ago. Barton's gracious tweet in response to fan pressure scuppering the original deal was just softening us up.....

'Don't worry Joey we'll pretend the deal is off and that we listened to the fans, then just before the window shuts we'll do the deal using Song's injury as the reason"

How can we say he's changed when he was sent off for punching an opponent in the balls just last season?!

According to that well known oracle claret and Hugh the move might be back on so we can steely assume he's never signing for us.

I think this is one of the things they did get right. The players he would replace aren't our biggest problem by any stretch.

I think it was suggested by Sullivan in the dreaded podcast, that a couple of senior players,not named,objected to the Barton signing.and they didn't want to upset the dressing room morale.

Ok - I'll rephrase.

The personnel were not to blame, the system they were put into was a problem.

Kouate had a slow start yesterday, Payet didn't turn up, Nolan was Nolan, that didn't give Noble and Obiang much of a chance yesterday.

Honest Hammer - I beg to differ on that one.

Whilst the goals were all down to individual errors Bournemouth bossed the game by dominating in midfield.

I don't think that Barton is the answer though as we are still screaming out for pace and movement in there not another plodder.

Bernie 2:32 Sun Aug 23
Re: Barton NOT having medical at West ham (Updated)
For large parts of the game yesterday our midfield was too narrow and too slow. Barton wouldn't improve that.

Honest Hammer 2:25 Sun Aug 23
Re: Barton NOT having medical at West ham (Updated)
Of all the issues yesterday - our midfield wasn't the problem.

Oliver Cromwell 2:22 Sun Aug 23
Re: Barton NOT having medical at West ham (Updated)
The owners should be begging him to join now

I'm with Chim on this one... think he would have done well here... I bet Carroll and Nolan went knocking on Gold0's door...

Everyone is a sports personality

It's just whether you like the actual personality that counts.

I wanted to sign Barton

That fucking David Gold has made a cowardly decision again. Sure, Sully could overrule him but he probably wants to remain on friendly terms.

Re: Barton NOT having medical at West ham (Updated)
No, I'm glad it's not reciprocated.

You're obviously a hysterical, right-on, lesbian.

If we'd signed Barton you'd probably have sown a protest quilt saying 'Barton- not in my name' and held a candle-lit non-violent vigil with your sistas outside the west-stand gates like when we signed Bowyer.

I wish it was reciprocated.
Cunt.
