Joey Barton would take huge paycut to join Everton

JOEY BARTON is prepared to take a big paycut to play for Everton, according to his agent Willie McKay.

The QPR midfielder, 30, spent last season on loan at Marseille and appears to have no future at Loftus Road, especially on reported wages of £70,000 a week.
But his salary has put off the French club from making a move to sign him permanently and McKay is exploring other options in an attempt to find a new club.
Huyton-born Barton supported the Toffees as a boy and has this morning tweeted "Once a blue..".
McKay told talkSPORT: "Obviously his package with QPR is pretty big for Marseille's terms really.

“Fair play to him he said he would lose money to go to Everton”
Barton's agent Willie McKay
"Joey said there was only one club he would make a sacrifice for and it would be Everton and I made that call to Martinez.
"That is the club he loves. I have approached them and said Joey would love to have Everton on his CV.
"Fair play to him he said he would lose money to go to Everton - and not many professionals would do that."
