Stump up Barry cash, O´Neill tells Reds

Published Add your comment

Martin O´Neill has challenged Liverpool to end the stalemate over Gareth Barry´s transfer to Anfield by meeting his asking price.

The Villa boss has revealed he accepted Barry would be leaving the club a month ago and, after rejecting a bid of #15million from the Reds on Wednesday, he has urged manager Rafael Benitez to meet his £18million valuation.

He told Villa´s official website, "We are really disappointed that he (Barry) is not going to be with us, he has made his mind up to go to Liverpool. You can talk and you can talk and talk but the bottom line was that when he came back from the England game in Trinidad and Tobago, he told me he wanted to leave."
