Villa Reject New Barry Bid

Villa Reject New Barry Bid

Well it's official, Villa have told the Scouse the small collection of hubcaps they offered for Barry is nowhere near enough.

It may well be that we are resigned to losing our influencial captain to Liverpool but it's good to see that we aren't rolling over and accepting a silly offer just because he may want away.

In previous years players have moved on for lower than market prices when they've wanted to go, but it seems the business end of our club is now sorted and we will only accept an offer that is acceptable to us, and not to the benefit of the player concerned or the buying club.

The latest offer from Liverpool was reportedly in the region of £15 million and it's rumoured that the club have said £20 million and maybe we'll deal.

A statement from Villa read:

'Liverpool's latest attempt to prise club captain Gareth Barry away from Villa Park has failed.

'A new bid was received late last night but was rejected.

'The offer was a slight improvement on a previous bid but our position on the issue remains unchanged and Liverpool have been informed.'

Oh that makes sweet reading!

Good to see we are not rolling over and dying as we did under the previous regime. Also worth noting that Brighton receive 15% of everything over £1 million. So they could be in for a £3m windfall if we get to a £20m deal, leaving us with £17m. A £15m deal actually means we get under £13m and Brighton benefit to the tune of £2.25m. That doesn't seem such good business when we could actually be losing him for that sort of cash.

Stick to our guns, if they don't like it they know what they can do. If he doesn't like it he can rot in the reserves. Simple as!

Not sure that is true voiceoftheholte - I had heard Brighton had a bit of financial difficulty in 2000 and we paid them £1m one-off and they waived that 15% clause. As far as I know we are keeping all the money. If the 15% was the case surely MON would be encouraging a players-plus-cash deal.
