Gervinho spat scuppered Barton move

Joey Barton has revealed that his on-pitch confrontation with Gervinho, which led to the Arsenal striker being sent off, ruined a possible move to Emirates Stadium.

Barton believes that an argument ended any chance of him joining Arsene Wenger's side and believes that his situation could have been different if that row hadn't taken place.

Barton eventually left Newcastle United for Queens Park Rangers last month.

Speaking to BBC Sport, Barton said: "If I hadn't played against Arsenal on the first day, I may have signed for them.

"There were a couple of conversations [with Wenger] but that's different to actually signing. The Gervinho incident happened and there's nothing I can do about it now.

"If it happened again, I'd like to think I'd deal with it differently. Things happen for a reason and there's a lesson to be learned from it. Right now, we sit above Arsenal in the table - hopefully that's the case in May."

However, despite the row - in which Gervinho received a red card - Barton was keen to underline his pleasure at having joined Neil Warnock's QPR.

"'There were a couple of offers on the table but now I'm really happy to be at QPR and in London," he said. "We play an expansive and exciting brand of football and can hopefully surprise a few people this season."
