Sky Sports sources understand that Newcastle midfielder Joey Barton has been given permission to open talks with QPR.

Barton's future at St James' Park is uncertain after he was recently placed on the transfer list and told he could leave on a free transfer following his outspoken remarks about the club on social networking sites.

This alerted a host of suitors but the midfielder has subsequently played for the Magpies in their undefeated start to the campaign.

But QPR, boosted by new owner Tony Fernandes taking over at Loftus Road, are keen to strengthen before the transfer window closes and have set their sights on Barton.

The player is now set to hold discussions with the newly-promoted Premier League club over a possible move.
