CRASH COURSE

Catch all the movers and shakers from this summer's transfer window.

Marseille coach Elie Baup admits he is unsure if QPR midfielder Joey Barton will return to the club this summer.

Barton has expressed his desire to rejoin Marseille after a successful spell on loan at Stade Velodrome last season.

Marseille are thought to be keen on signing Barton on a permanent basis if he can free himself up from QPR by cancelling his contract at Loftus Road.

Baup admits Marseille and Barton have agreed a deal, but says everything depends on QPR with the 30-year-old still having two years to run on his contract in London.

"Joey Barton's comeback? I do not know how it will evolve," Baup told L'Equipe.

"The club and the player agreed about the challenge ahead, but he still belongs to QPR."
