Liverpool skipper Gerrard urges Villa's Barry to forget Man City

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard has again admitted he wants to see Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry join him at Anfield.

Barry was in talks with Manchester City this morning and at midday, Gerrard said: "Would I still like to see Gareth Barry join Liverpool? Yes. He is a top player. Top players improve your team and squad. He is a Liverpool type of player.

"He is very clever but he is still an Aston Villa player and I don't want to disrespect Martin O'Neill. If it happens, then great.

"If it doesn't, hopefully we get players in of Gareth's standard.

"When you watch Villa, Gareth is their main man, their captain, their leader. He scores good goals, creates chances. I've enjoyed working with him at England."
