Man City boss Hughes insists Barry bargain signing

Manchester City boss Mark Hughes insists they didn't pay over the odds to land former Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry in a £12 million deal.

"We have got a bargain because Gareth is coming into the best years of his career," said Hughes.

"He is now a senior player but I only became a stronger person when I moved somewhere else.

"His standing in the game will raise as a result of us paying a significant amount of money for him."
