Everton Made Favourites to Sign Barton

No fewer than six clubs are available to back at single figure odds

Everton are the latest club to be made the betting favourites to sign midfielder Joey Barton on a free transfer.

The Toffees have been linked with a move for the midfielder, who played for the club at youth level, numerous times throughout his career. Now that he is available on a free transfer it appears that David Moyes could finally get his man.

Barton, a boyhood Everton fan, spoke of his admiration for the club as recently as last season. After losing a fitness battle to face the Merseyside club he said: “I’m a boyhood Everton fan so this is always one of the games I look for in the fixture list.”

The decision by Newcastle to release Barton came after the player criticised the club’s transfer policy on Twitter, then refused to shake manager Alan Pardew’s hand after he was not made captain for the pre-season friendly against Leeds Untied.

No fewer than six clubs are available to back at single figure odds with the bookmakers in the Joey Barton next club betting. Skybet currently go as short as 4/6 that he becomes an Everton player this summer, although William Hill appear to be a little more conservative about the idea and offer odds of 11/4.

Celtic, having been strong favourites yesterday, are now around the 5/1 mark to sign Barton while Tottenham, Arsenal, Manchester Untied and Aston Villa can all be backed at similar odds to the Glasgow side.
