Villa's Barry shrugs off Chelsea interest

Boss Martin O'Neill rubbished the speculation as paper talk and now the Villa skipper has moved to reassure fans he is not leaving Villa Park.

"I saw the story but it was the first I'd heard of it. Of course I am happy at Villa," Barry told the club's official website. "I guess it is just a reflection of how I am doing at club and international level.

"How true it is I don't know. I certainly won't be worrying about it or thinking about it. I'd like to reassure fans that I am not looking to leave.

"The manager, chairman - we are all going in the right direction. These things come up suddenly from time to time, and I don't know how true they are."
