Joey Barton was never on Arsene Wenger's radar, says Arsenal chief

The QPR new signing was heavily linked with a shock move to the Emirates during the summer, and recently revealed he held ‘a couple of conversations’ with Arsene Wenger about a possible switch.

However, Gunners chief Hill-Wood appears to have dismissed the midfielder’s remarks, insisting he Wenger’s supposed interest in bad-boy Barton was news to him.

The story is too old to be commented.
