News of the World reports that Liverpool have not reached a deal for Aston Villa’s Gareth Barry. It was thought that the England midfielder would travel to Liverpool to have medical on Sunday, but Martin O’Neill has categorically denied those rumours.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“There is not a grain of truth in this story that the club or Randy Lerner agreed any deal with Liverpool.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“We have waited over a week for them to come back to us and respond to our price for Gareth.
Ã¢â‚¬Å“They know what it is but their original offer hasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t changed.Ã¢â‚¬Â Said O’Neill as reported by News of the World.
Aston Villa want Ã‚Â£18 million for their captain, but Liverpool have offered Ã‚Â£15 million at most, according to various reports. Arsenal were also rumoured to be interested in Barry, but they have yet to lodge a bid. Should neither club managed to meet Aston Villa’s asking price, Barry will be in limbo as hi Aston Villa career has surely come to an end.
