Gareth Barry is set to embark on an 11th campaign as an Aston Villa player after his hopes of a move to Liverpool appeared to have been dashed.

The England midfielder had made it clear at the end of last season that he wanted to make the switch to Anfield and link up with his close friend Steven Gerrard, who was "desperate" for the move to materialise.
