Gareth Barry has left his agent Alex Black with the Sunday Mail saying it is because the agent failed to get him his ‘dream move’ to Liverpool in the summer.

They also claim – which to me looks simply like putting 2+2 together and coming up with 5 – that ditching his agent is a clear sign that Barry intends to quit Villa Park at the end of the season if we don’t get a Champions League place. Well, they are wrong, he can’t quit, he has another year on his contract. There is some talk that he could buy his way out of the deal but that situation isn’t clear, MON talked about it recently and said he hadn’t got a clue. Some have suggested that would only be if he moved abroad.
