Barry rated at £10 million by MO'N

Liverpool must cough up £10 million to land Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry.

The Mirror says Liverpool, who tabled four failed bids for Barry last summer, are set to resume their pursuit of Aston Villa’s England midfielder.

And Villa boss O’Neill has pledged not to stand in Barry’s way if the left-footed maestro wants to quit for Champions League football.

But O’Neill insists Barry,28, valued at £18m last summer, will still cost a lot despite having only 12 months remaining on his £47,000-a-week contract.

"The price obviously with a year left to run is a different issue," said O’Neill, who has offered Barry a lucrative new deal to stay.

"But by the same token he is an England international player, he has captained his country and he is still only 28 years old.

"He wouldn’t come cheaply even in this day and age."
