England midfielder Gareth Barry wants his future at Aston Villa sorted out now rather than have the situation drag on over the summer.
The 27-year-old is wanted by Liverpool but Villa have been angered by the public pursuit of the former Brighton player.
Barry said: "I would like things cleared up. The sooner the better, it would be easier for myself and for the fans as well, so I´m sure we can get it done pretty soon."
