He Comes, He Goes, He Stays - Barry Saga Over!

Gareth Barry's agent (boooo, boooo!) Alex Black has confirmed that Gareth Barry will be staying at Villa this season.

The agent issued a brief statement bringing the summer long ordeal to an end.

'After much speculation I can confirm Gareth Barry will not leave Aston Villa before the transfer window closes. He made the decision not to leave two weeks ago. We hope this draws a line under the matter.'

The Mirror claim that Barry won't look to enter into contract talks with Villa until the end of this season but 'is fully committed to the club'.

And so endeth the saga.

Just as well really, I've bought some new Barry images!

I think you guys played this one perfectly. Fair play for not lower your valuation and Barry strikes me as the sort of player who will always give 100%.
