Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill says keeping Gareth Barry is his No1 priority this summer.

He said: "Trying to keep Gareth Barry at the football club will be the most important thing that we're trying to do in the summertime.

"A player of Gareth's undoubted quality and ability would take some replacing so keeping him at Aston Villa is as important as anything we do in the transfer market."
