Barry No Go For 'Arry
Portsmouth boss Harry Redknapp has confirmed that Pompey tried and failed to lure Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry to Portsmouth.
Harry told Sky Sports:
'Gareth Barry is a talented player and we placed a bid with Aston Villa. They turned it down because he is someone they want to keep.'
Adding, with the departure of our manager: ''I don't know if the situation will be different now David O'Leary has been sacked.'
I can confirm the situation hasn't altered 'Arry, Barry is not for sale!
Reports suggest that the left sided midfielder attracted a £4.5million bid. Tottenham Hotspur have also been linked to Barry several times.
