Joey Barton for England??

England head Steve Mclaren has hinted that Joey Barton could be in line for an England call up.

Barton is reportedly among 50 Premiership players whom Mclaren has shortlisted to keep an eye on. The Manchester City midfielder has had displicinary problems in the past, but Mclaren has said that they wouldn’t come in his way. Barton was also a player Mclaren was interested in when he was managed at the Riverside. City had also rejected a verbal offer for the tenacious midfielder from Boro in January 2006.

The midfield for England is great on paper, but they have failed to click as a team. It could be for this reason, that Mclaren has been forced to look ou for people who can deliver on a consistent basis and Barton could figure in his plans.
