Barton will have no shortage of takers with Bolton manager Owen Coyle confirming his interest in the player.
“He’s a very talented player. We know that,” Coyle told Sky Sports News.
“There’s no doubt Joey will have very attractive offers because he’s a talented player.
“We’ll continue to bring the right players to football club. Hopefully I can have one or two new faces, ideally before the QPR game, but certainly before the end of the transfer window.
“Every manager is in the same boat. We’re trying to improve our squads and trying to do the best business we can for our clubs.”
