Spurs aim to trump Liverpool for Villa's Barry

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is moving for Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry.

The Independent says Spurs hope that Liverpool's uncertain finances mean that they will be able to tempt Barry away from Aston Villa where he has one year left on his contract.

At 28 years old, Barry does not fit the profile of the kind of player whom the Spurs chairman Daniel Levy usually signs - Levy normally prefers to buy younger, less-expensive players. However, Redknapp is convinced that the club needs older, more experienced players to set a more professional mood around the training ground and Barry fits the bill perfectly.
