Gareth Barry is feeling better about his future at Aston Villa after a summer of transfer speculation.

He is on his way to finding some form, although Barry could not stop his side losing 1-0 to QPR in the Carling Cup on Wednesday.

Barry said: "There aren't too many positives you can take from a defeat like that but at least I'm beginning to enjoy my football again.

"Things happen in life but I always try to play well against any team."
