Joey Barton was set for West Ham this week after the player discussed personal terms and reportedly went through a medical with the London Outfit. However at the last minute one of the parties pulled out of the deal leaving Joey Barton still without a club.
SKYBET have since slashed the odds on the volatile midfielder heading to Celtic after being released by QPR this summer. He’s now 2/1 to move to Scotland.
The player who is obviously talented does not find controversy hard to come by and his combative nature gets him into all sorts of trouble on the pitch.
Off the pitch he is a well articulated person who has strong beliefs and opinions that he regularly shares with his twitter followers. On his twitter feed he’s never been shy about his admiration for Celtic and wanting to play in the famous Hoops one day.
However at the age of 32 this would not be a typical signing for Celtic and with a plethora of talent in midfield already the move doesn’t seem very likely even if the bookies have slashed the odds.
