Eventual New Bid Rejected

Eventual New Bid Rejected

The club have released a statement on the official site, rubbishing reports of a £17 million bid for Gareth Barry.

Earlier in the day many in the media published stories surrounding a 'take it or leave it' offer from Liverpool. Bith club's rubbished these rumours.

Later reports of a £17 million bid have been branded inaccurate by Villa.

The statement reads simply:

'The club have received a renewed offer from Liverpool for the player but that still falls well short of Aston Villa's evaluation, and has subsequently been rejected.'

Gareth Barry would do well to realise the club's standpoint on this. It is irrelevant if he 'desires' to move on, he is contracted to us for another 2 years.

He will not be going anywhere whilst Liverpool fail to meet our valuation.

Whilst that remains the case, whether his comments in the News of the World were from his own mouth or sanctioned via a third party, he would do well to remember you only burn bridges after you have crossed to the other side.

Setting light to the relationship he has with Aston Villa, our fans, and the manager whilst he is sitting in the middle of the bridge would be considered suicide and stupidity of the highest order.

I have ad enough of this now, they cant afford him and he clearly doesnt want to play for us lets just grab finnan or crouch or both and move on. The barry situation is not our priority, bringing in players for the intertoto cup is.

We don't need the money, and as much as i'd like to get shut of him sooner rather than later, the consequencies of selling him to Liverpool before at least January would be detrimental to Villa. We will retain the name 'feeder club' and will be strengthening the club we're trying to catch. F**k him, put him on the beach and forget about him. Then we can rebuild.

Its nice to see your club are not letting one of the 'big 4' bully you into selling. The media ass lick the 'big 4' and keep on and on until it happens.

he has already set things alight. to say you want to leave aston villa is a disgrace - especially when under contract.
