Villa to play tough over Gareth Barry? Well, yes according to a report in The Sun today by Janine Self.
According to her report Villa boss Martin O'Neill and the club are happy (well, not happy but you get the drift) to lose the chance of around £9million in transfer fees and allow the Villa Captain to leave for a free the following summer instead of selling him to a rival Premiership Club.
The paper says he has three choices 1) make Villa follow their 'gentleman's agreement' to allow him to join a top four club this summer if one bids 2) Sign a new and massive contract at Villa 3) Run down his contract and leave on a Bosman in the summer of 2010.
Hopefully whatever happens, the situation is cleared up VERY quickly and early on this summer. If he goes he needs replacing and if he stays then that will surely help attract more players? If top quality players see that the England midfielder leaves then surely they too will doubt our ability to seriously break into the top four?
Nothing to do with me but I'm not sure making him stay and run down his contract would be the best thing to do, if he does seriously want to leave - again - then it would surely be better to allow him to go, no matter how much the team and many of us fans would miss him?
