Liverpool chiefs confident landing Villa's Barry

Liverpool chiefs are confident of winning the race for Aston Villa captain Gareth Barry.

The Mirror says there is increasing optimism at Anfield that the chance of playing Champions League football next season will be the key to luring Barry to Merseyside from Aston Villa in the summer.

In addition, Barry is desperate to become an England regular and knows that playing alongside Steven Gerrard would be a major boost to his international ambitions.
