Signed: Joey Barton is back at Turf Moor

Following detailed discussions regarding the recent FA charge brought against Barton, the club have now reached an agreement with the player and his representatives over a contract with the club until the end of the season.

Barton becomes available for selection from tomorrow, after completing his registration in time to serve a one match suspension against Manchester City, as a result of a carry-over suspension passed down from the Scottish FA relating to a previous offence.
