Villa boss O'Neill happy after talks with Barry agent

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill is happy over discussions with the agent of Gareth Barry about his future at Villa Park.

Barry is a target for Liverpool and Tottenham with just over a year left on his existing contract.

"We are well aware of the situation and a lot has been said that does not ring true,'' said O'Neill. "All I am saying is that in the discussions we have had have been very amicable and both parties are absolutely clear in the direction we are heading.

"We would love Gareth to stay at the football club and we are aware that he has got things to consider in the summer."
