Barry plays down Villa exodus

Gareth Barry does not believe Aston Villa's stars will follow his example and leave Martin O'Neill's side this summer. Barry finally called time on his lengthy stay with the Midlands outfit last week after sealing a £12million move to Manchester City. The England international's departure has led to speculation that some of the club's bright young stars could also seek pastures new. However, Barry believes with age on their side they will remain at Villa Park and continue to improve their games. "I can't believe any other top players at the club will leave," he told the Birmingham Mail. "If I was 22 or 23 like Gabby (Agbonlahor) and Ashley (Young) I would want to stay at Villa Park. It is different at my age, 28."
