Well here is one bit of good news, Gareth Barry is not for sale.
Rumours have circulated that Gareth Barry is a target for Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur, however David O'Leary has warned potential suitors that the player isn't available and won't be made available.
'I wouldn't let Barry go. I had a conversation some time ago when I thought Graeme Souness (when at the helm of Newcastle) was sounding me out about Gareth. I made it clear he wouldn't be for sale and that still stands.'
Wonder if Doug has been told?! Also, more worryingly, I wonder if the player agrees? He apparently supported Spurs as a boy and how many of our players would leave Villa Park this summer given a chance? Careers in football are short and these players want to play in Europe. The only way our squad will play in Europe next season is if Doug organises an away day to Ibiza!
Barry, who has been in outstanding form this season despite the problems at Villa, has played 31 games in the Prem with just one goal to his name. He has also scored 3 goals in the Cup competitions. I think we would have been in the relegation zone already if not for his efforts this season. He is likely to miss the local derby against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday due to a knock he picked up against Fulham. Barry will face a late fitness test.
