Martin O’Neill is confident that his club can withstand interest from bigger clubs for his star performers this Summer.

Gareth Barry only has one year left on his deal and the likes of Liverpool and Arsenal are being linked with a move for the English international, along with Tottenham.

The former Brighton man has just one year left on his contract, but O’Neill feels they can persuade him to stay and avoid another Summer of speculation.

O’Neill said: “Will be fending of inquiries for players? Players are under contract. That is vitally important.”

“I would be surprised if some people were not inquiring about our players – big teams – but I am hoping we will be able to withstand that.”

“With Gareth, you do accept – having spent 10-11 years at the club – he would be wanting to have a look at other particular things.”

“Are Villa no longer a selling club? At the moment we are pretty vibrant. It will be up to us to try and maintain that.”

“I just think there is a bit of something about the side here we would like to continue trying to improve.”
