Villa's Barry determined to clinch Liverpool move

Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry remains determined to earn a move to Liverpool.

The Independent says Barry's personal view has not changed despite a much more conciliatory position from the club's fans and the Villa manager, Martin O'Neill.

Both Barry and Liverpool are hopeful that talks between the two clubs will move forward this week and Barry himself is still grimly resolved that he has to be playing for a Champions League team next season.

The England international wants to play Champions League football next season at Liverpool or, failing that, at Arsenal. The £18m valuation placed upon him has given both clubs cause for doubt but it has not changed the way the player himself feels.
