Gareth Barry has completed his shock switch to Manchester City in a £12million deal.

The England midfielder has left Aston Villa to sign a five-year contract at Eastlands that Sportsmail understands is worth in the region of £130,000-a-week.

The move was wrapped up in double-quick time today with Villa landing a good fee for a player who had just a year left on his contract.
