Laursen: Keeping Barry helps Villa in market

Aston Villa captain Martin Laursen believes by keeping Gareth Barry away from Liverpool it has strengthened their hand in the transfer market.

"He doesn't have to go," he insisted on Setanta Sports. "Obviously they have more money at Manchester United or Chelsea, but here we can offer him a good contract as well.

"I think that we can keep him and try to attract other players as well, and that is very important for the future of Aston Villa."
