Aston Villa have sent Liverpool a letter understood to be demanding £17million payable within 12 months and right-back Steve Finnan to secure the services of skipper Gareth Barry.

The Barry transfer saga is shaping up to be the saga of the summer, with a succession of bids from Anfield for the England international turned down by Martin O’Neil.

O’Neil says, “Liverpool have come back to us and we have responded to their proposal with a letter. We’re still waiting to hear back.

“It’s really up to Liverpool. I really don’t know how it’s going to work out at the moment. I’m sure there will be some sort of resolution at some stage or another.”

The 27-year-old midfielder has expressed his desire to leave Villa Park, but his club’s high valuation of him could easily out price Liverpool, who may choose to look elsewhere.

To mark the end of the 30-year wait for a league title, the ‘Liverpool Mishmash’ poster is available to order exclusively on This Is Anfield — the history of the Reds in one image!
