They claim the players offered for Barry were Peter Crouch, John Arne Risse or Jermain Pennant. According to this report Barry has already decided he is leaving and we’ll sell him for around £12million. Add a few million and they might well be right. He told people yesterday he hadn’t made up his mind but………..
