Reds boss Benitez has made four separate bids for the player, the latest reputed to be around £15million, but still £3million short of O´Neill´s valuation.
"Gareth has made his position clear and after that it is straightforward," Villa boss Martin O´Neill told his club´s official website, www.avfc.co.uk. "We have put a valuation on him and Liverpool value him differently at the moment. That is what the stalemate is, it is nothing else."
