Barry staying a Villian this year : Aston Villa

Aston Villa's Gareth Barry would stay at Villa Park,for at least one more year.

Gareth Barry had been wanted by Liverpool all throughout the transfer market and Barry himself wanted a move to Anfield to fulfill his UEFA Champions League dreams.

The deal although has fallen through after Liverpool failed to bid for Villa's asking price of 18million pounds in the stipulated time period.

Villa's website read,
This evening, Aston Villa can announce that Gareth Barry will be staying with the club following the interest from Liverpool over recent months.

During discussions in the past few days, a final deadline to conclude this episode was set that all parties were aware of and agreed to. This deadline has now passed and so Gareth will remain with Villa.

Rafa Benitez had only this week completed the move for Robbie Keane from Spurs and was expected to sell at least three players to make finances available for Barry to be his midfield partnership with Steven Gerrard.

Rafa Benitez can now look elsewhere! Options anyone!?
