Barcelona ready to reward Xavi with new deal

Barcelona are ready to hand midfielder Xavi a new contract.

The Spain international was named Euro2008's premier player last week and Barca hope to secure him to a new five-year contract in the coming weeks.

Xavi's new deal will place him alongside the club's top earners, including skipper Carles Puyol and midfielder Lionel Messi.
