"As a football player I don’t want to play for any other football club," Barton told French Football Weekly.
"For Marseille, for me to stay here. It suits everyone – it suits me, the fans love me, and I love them. I think they see that you care
"I don’t need any convincing. For me, I’m more than happy to stay here. I envisage myself playing for another 6-8 years, I won’t retire, they’ll have to carry me off the pitch."
Marseille currently sit in second place in the current Ligue 1 table, nine points behind league leaders Paris Saint-Germain with six games of the campaign left to play.
