Gareth Barry on verge of 12m move to Manchester City
The club have accepted a £12m offer for the midfielder, who could have a medical in London this week. It is understood City officials have flown to England's training camp to speak to the midfielder who is currently preparing for the World Cup qualifier against Kazakhstan. A deal could happen by Wednesday. It will come as a huge blow to Villa, and their supporters, that their stand-in captain is ready to join another club for reasons other than those he has already put forward - primarily the prospect of playing Champions League football.
