Villa boss O'Neill not bothered about Barry transfer hype

Aston Villa boss Martin O'Neill expects a new round of transfer speculation this summer for midfielder Gareth Barry.

O'Neill said: "The speculation regarding Gareth is inevitable. It will happen, it's not a problem. I have discussed it numerous times with the player.

"He is very happy to wait until the end of the season to see how things develop. That's the way we have left it.

"But this is not like last year. This is a situation which I realised would come around and that's the way it is. It's not an issue.

"I'm not bothered (by last summer). From the experience of last year I don't think that will materialise.

"I really have not got an issue with any of this here come the end of the season."
