O'Neill offers to make Defoe Villa's top earner

The Mirror says Defoe would be expected to play alongside John Carew and has been offered a four-and-half year deal worth £47,000 a week to put him on parity with their top earner, skipper Gareth Barry.

Villa boss Martin O'Neill is concerned about the number of games young star Gabriel Agbonlahor is being asked to play and fears the England prospect could suffer burn-out.
