Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry is hoping to get his future sorted out as soon as possible, with Liverpool keen to lure the England international to Anfield. The 27-year-old admits that it will be a difficult decision to make if the Reds have a bid accepted for his services and Barry is keen to get the situation sorted out in the near future. He 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. "I've got nothing planned with Martin O'Neill, but I'm sure the manager will want to speak to me and I'll eventually want to speak to the manager. That will come soon enough. "It's obviously very flattering, the team has made a bid for me, but until the bid gets accepted I can't even think about it. "Liverpool are in the Champions League and Villa are trying to push for that. That's all part of my decision if a bid gets accepted. "Just to think about it makes it a tough decision. There's so much to lose at Aston Villa. "I've been there for ten years, got a good rapport with the fans, I'm captain and have a great relationship with the manager."
