Wigan, Birmingham target Gardner wants Villa stay

Aston Villa midfielder Craig Gardner hopes to get the chance to fill the void left by Gareth Barry next season.

Barry's move to Manchester City has opened up a place in Villa's midfield and Gardner told the Birmingham Mail: "It's nice to hear that some of the fans think I might be able to step into Gareth's shoes and hopefully it happens."

Gardner, said to be attracting interest from Wigan and Birmingham City with the view to a loan, insists he is happy to stay on and fight for his place at Villa.

"We will see what happens. I'm happy at the club," he said.
