Villa director General Charles Krulak has said Villa will do all they can to keep Gareth Barry at the club but if he still feels he wants to go, they won’t block him.

Now some fans will be angry at that stance but realistically, if a player has had his head turned (and I’m not saying Barry has) and from bitter experience with Dwight Yorke, we all know that player will get their own way, so it would be a sensible stance to not keep him against his will AS LONG as we get the fee that suits US not the club buying him!

The General, frequenter of our forum ( Click Here ) says:

‘Obviously, we are keen to keep our captain – and we will do all in our power to keep him. But at the same time, he plays a huge part in this equation. At the end of the day, he needs to want to stay. The very worst thing we could do would be to try and hold onto a player who wants to leave.’



Adding ‘I hope that we can show him that his future is, in fact, at Aston Villa. We will work hard to do just that.’

The People today claim that Arsenal are also now in the hunt for the Villa skipper along with Chelsea and Liverpool.
