Joey Barton to re-sign for Burnley in January on short-term deal

Joey Barton has agreed a deal to re-join Burnley until the end of the season. 

Barton has been training with Burnley since being sacked by scottish club Rangers and Burnley boss Sean Dyche feels the veteran midfielder can still do a job in the Premier League. 

The 34-year-old rejected the offer of a new deal at Turf Moor to join Rangers on a free transfer in the summer and is happy to be back in the top flight. 

Dyche is pleased to have him back on board and the former Newcastle, Manchester City, Marseille and Qpr Midfielder was named the club's Player of the Year last season for his role in their Championship-winning campaign. 

Barton left Rangers in acrimonious circumstances after a bust-up with manager Mark Warburton. 

The former Manchester City and QPR midfielder only played eight games for the club after arriving in May. 

He was involved in a training ground altercation with a teammate following the drubbing by Celic and banned for six weeks. 

Barton was also handed a one-match suspension for breaking Scottish Football Association rules on gambling. 

It is likely the ban will be transferred, once his move is finalised. Burnley are currently 16th in the Championship table, three points ahead of the relegation zone.
