Aston Villa are set to land Gareth Barry at Villa Park this summer.

The return of the star to the club would raise the profile even further after they nabbed John Terry recently. The fans of the club have long awaited the addition of the player but time is running fast.

The former Manchester city man is set to exit Goodison Park this summer. There are Premier League sides that are keen on landing him such as West Bromwich Albion, Burnley and the rest.

Gareth Barry Delighted with Ross Barkley’s Turnaround under Ronald Koeman

Everton midfielder Gareth Barry says that manager Ronald Koeman has been able to get the best out of midfielder Ross Barkley.

The midfielder faced a lot of criticism when the Dutchman took over from Roberto Martinez in the summer.

Upon taking over, Koeman threatened that he would not think twice about dropping the star midfielder if he felt that the player’s performances were not up to the mark. There were even occasions whenBarkley had to settle for a place on the bench.


Sometimes you wonder if manager Arsene Wenger is no longer bored of this circus of safety of just qualifying for the UEFA Champions League year in, year out.

It gets increasingly depressing for the fans who wish for more and instead of looking out for options hungry enough to get them what they want, they’d rather let go of such ambitions and stick with the devil they know than hop into bed with some unknown angel.

This gave Everton the first league win of the season after they could only come away with a 1-1 draw from the game against Tottenham. This victory was vitally important to kickstart the campaign and help the arrival of a new manager be a seamless transition from the previous regime.Koeman has arrived at Everton from Southampton with big ambitions.
