Joey Barton will not be joining West Ham after weeks of speculation.

The midfielder confirmed that he won't be joining the Hammers after holding further talks with Slaven Bilic. The news was also confirmed by Hammers co-chairman David Gold, so it seems the move is definitely off. There is no certainly that Barton will join a Premier League team so we recommend not touching him in any fantasy formats.

Joey Barton will reportedly hold more talks with West Ham United after undergoing a medical on Tuesday.

Barton is seeking assurances from the Hammers and the 32-year-old will hold further talks with boss Slaven Bilic today. Bilic wants to add experience with Barton, but it's unknown if he can guarantee the player enough playing time. This is an interesting story to follow since Hammers co-chairman David Gold has tweeted about Barton before in an unfavorable light. Stay tuned for more on this story in the coming days.

The rumor mill has Joey Barton preparing for a Tuesday medical ahead of a move to West Ham United.

ESPNFC is reporting that the controversial midfielder will move across London from QPR to West Ham United on a free after his contract with the Rs expired at the end of last season. Barton would likely be no better than a reserve for the Hammers but a useful one if things worked out for him to start a stretch of matches. At his best he is still a fantasy force when starting regularly albeit one that could always get you a red card at a moment's notice.

QPR have warned Crystal Palace that Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy will only be allowed to leave if the £3.5 million release clause in his contract is met…

McCarthy has made it clear his future lies away from QPR, following first-choice keeper Rob Green’s decision to commit his future to the club. Palace lodged an initial £2m bid for the 25-year-old as a potential replacement for Wayne Hennessey, who is attracting attention from West Brom. But QPR insist they will not accept anything less than the £3.5m release clause. McCarthy himself is desperate for game time and previously turned down an approach from Liverpool for that reason. Harry Redknapp described him as a future England keeper and he is unlikely to embrace a move that will see him as cover for Palace’s current number one, Julian Speroni.

Crystal Palace have confirmed their interest in QPR’s Matt Phillips, but will face competition from a handful of PL clubs – Sunderland and West Brom among them…

Matt Phillips’ form was one of QPR’s few high spots last season. The winger established himself in a more influential central role under Chris Ramsey, scoring three goals and providing eight assists from just 20 starts. A number of PL clubs have already declared an interest, including Sunderland and West Brom but Palace will hope being based in London will give them an advantage. They are not short of attacking midfield players, so this move might rekindle speculation that Palace are ready to listen to offers for Yannick Bolasie. Alan Pardew famously said that he wouldn’t listen to offers below £40 million, but if QPR are willing to accept around £8m for Phillips he might reconsider this position. Palace have also this week been linked with Hull striker Dame N’Doye and Newcastle keep Tim Krul.

Tony Pulis is hoping to conclude his transfer business nice and early despite growing uncertainty regarding the club’s takeover.

Pulis has identified three players and will discuss potential dealings with the current Baggies’ chairman – Jeremy Peace – in spite of the impending change of leadership. Wigan winger James McClean will look to join forces with former team-mate Callum McManaman while Queens Park Rangers will struggle to hold onto Matty Phillips with West Brom preparing a $10 million bid. Phillips was one of the few success stories at Loftus Road last season contributing 3-goals / 8-assists and the attacking midfielder is said to be keen on remaining within the BPL. Pulis would also like to add some proven fire-power to his side with Demba Ba flagged as a top target. The former Newcastle, West Ham and Chelsea forward boasts an impressive record in the top-flight with 43 goals from 77 Premier League starts.

Queens Park Rangers confirmed post-match that bloodied goalkeeper Rob Green suffered no serious after-effects following his head injury during the home win over Newcastle.

Green was on the receiving end of an accidental knee to the face by teammate Joey Barton which ended his afternoon. Medics attended to a laceration around his eye before Alex McCarthy was introduced for only his second BPL appearance. Rangers ended their home campaign on a positive note as they overturned a 1-goal half-time deficit to take all 3-points in scrappy game. Emmanuel Riviere grabbed his first goal in over 18 hours of league football in a dour opening 45 minutes before Matty Phillips levelled early after the break. Leroy Fer rounded off the comeback with a strike worthy of gracing any footballing stage to secure his side’s third win of the year.

Clint Hill is unlikely to feature for QPR against Manchester City this weekend as he nurses a hamstring injury back to health.

Clint Hill is about as uninteresting as it gets when it comes to fantasy Premier League and even less so, if that's possible, on a weekend when QPR travel to the Etihad. The injury is only worth noting because it is one of multiple potential absences for the Rs while City have a number of key players - Yaya Toure, Vincent Kompany, and Jesus Navas - all coming back to fitness. It could get ugly if City go up early.

Bobby Zamora has scored some huge goals for QPR but he may be deprived of an encore as a hip injury may keep him from playing at the Etihad in Week 36.

It was Bobby Zamora's goal that rocketed QPR back into the Premier League as they were teetering on the brink of financial ruin. Despite speculation that he might retire on that note, Zamora stayed on at Loftus Road and contributed to the Rs attempts to stay up for a second consecutive season in the Premier League. Injury has left him at the periphery of the squad for much of the season but he has still managed to contribute occasionally. That is unlikely to be the case this weekend with a hip injury plaguing the forward but you never want to rule him out after some of the highlights he has produced in his time at the club.

Mauricio Isla is a doubt ahead of QPR's Week 36 trip to the Etihad as they attempt to beat the drop.

Chilean Isla hasn't played since mid-April when he went the distance in the West London Derby at Loftus Road. He was on the bench against West Ham on the 25th of April but didn't even get that far last weekend as the Rs fell again. It will be all hands on deck in an effort to avoid relegation so if Chris Ramsey thinks Isla has a part to play, the chances are he'll be thrown out there. His value is still fairly low given the uncertainty, the opponent and the venue.

Matthew Phillips has probably played well enough this season to find a Premier League home for 2015-16 after QPR are relegated.

QPR are going to be in a horrible financial position heading into the summer and their relegation will not help matters. Charlie Austin, Robert Green, Leroy Fer and Matthew Phillips are the most likely players to be valued enough by other clubs that QPR can sell them in a vain attempt to balance the books. Austin is likely the only really big ticket item but Green, Fer and Phillips could each fetch at least solid fees.

Bobby Zamora is struggling to get fit for QPR's clash against Liverpool this weekend.

It's very unlikely that Zamora will make this weekend's match so you should avoid him in all fantasy formats. QPR are huge underdogs in this match and there is really no value to be found there. Focus on Liverpool's attack or find another match to look for value.

QPR looked to be headed to a goalless draw with table leader Chelsea but a mistake by Robert Green led to an 88th minute goal for the Blues and Rangers dropped a crucial point in a 0-1 loss.

It may not have been as harmful or as embarrassing as the infamous howler he conceded for England against the United States back in 2010, but it was nonetheless damaging. Chelsea had gone the first 88 minutes without so much as a shot on target and Rangers were very close to seeing the match out with a needed point. Green collected the ball for a goal kick, urging his men to go forward. He then scuffed it, and the ball dropped just 20 yards away, where Eden Hazard quickly pounced and the attack was on that led to the Fabregas goal. If QPR are relegated by the difference of a point, it will be difficult for their fans to not dwell on this result as the pivotal moment when their fates were sealed.

Queens Park Rangers have been dealt a massive blow with the news that midfielder Eduardo Vargas will miss the remainder of the season after a scan confirmed the Chilean had suffered a grade two medial collateral knee ligament tear.

Vargas had sent the Hoops on their way to an emphatic [and unexpected] win at West Brom in GW31 with a long range opener on 15 minutes but his afternoon was curtailed on the half hour mark as he twisted unchallenged attempting to strike a ball mid-air. QPR released an official statement on Monday advising that Vargas would be missing for around 10-12 weeks with knee ligament damage. Niko Kranjcar was his immediate replacement at the Hawthorns - and as a starter at Villa Park - but the Croatian struggled on Tuesday and Rangers’ became a much stronger unit following the introduction of Karl Henry who was paired with Joey Barton. Chris Ramsey must now consider his options ahead of Sundays' crucial game against Chelsea.

Chris Ramsey will assess Suk-Young Yun ahead of this weekends’ trip to Stamford Bridge after mild concussion ruled the Korean defender out of the draw at Villa Park.

Yun was unable to finish the match at the Hawthorns on Saturday following a clash of heads and although the problem is not thought to be serious the defender was not risked against Aston Villa. His absence earned 37-year old Clint Hill a recall and the veteran responded with a solid performance while grabbing his first ever Premier League goal. Tuesdays’ draw left QPR two points adrift of safety but the Hoops can take confidence from their last two performances and with players returning from injury Chris Ramsey will have plenty of options for the season run-in. Richard Dunne stepped up his recovery with the U21s on Tuesday while teammate Leroy Fer is close and Darnell Furlong is expected to be available for GW32.
