Barton, who won one international cap for England, scored one goal in 28 appearances in all competitions for Chris Ramsey’s side last season as they slipped out of the English top flight.

Having also played for Manchester City and Newcastle United; Barton has made it clear his desire is to return to the Premier League this summer, with the Canaries in pole position as manager Alex Neil looks to bolster his midfield ranks.
