Milner: Villa midfield can handle Barry exit

James Milner insists Aston Villa's midfield is strong enough to handle the departure of Gareth Barry to Manchester City.

The winger said: "Stiliyan Petrov is still here and is a great player who has just signed a new contract and will give us experience.

"Craig Gardner is always improving and will want more games. Steve Sidwell has had a bit of trouble with injuries but he is still there. There is already quality here in our squad."
