Joey Barton – It’s Fantastic Business For Newcastle

Friday, September 4th, 2015 · 136 Comments

Joey Barton certainly seems to think that French U21 International Florian Thauvin is a good buy for Newcastle.

The 22-year-old was one of four senior players who Newcastle signed in the summer for what Lee Charnley has said was £52.6M in net transfer fees.

Florian was signed for around £14.5M from Marseilles.

So it’s not surprising that QPR are trying to get Charlie to sign a new deal,  that will mean QPR can still ask for a big transfer fee if the player leaves QPR for a PL club in the next year.
