Gareth Barry is set to undergo a medical at Manchester City after they reportedly agreed an £11m fee with Aston Villa for the midfielder.

Aston Villa’s official website revealed talks were underway this morning – and there is no sign of a late move by Rafael Benitez and Liverpool for the Englishman.

Barry is said to have agreed personal terms and is happy to sign a contract based on a positive medical this evening.

The 28 year old midfielder promised Aston Villa’s supporters that he would secure his future, one way or another, as soon as possible this Summer to avoid another drawn out saga like last Summer’s.

City have stolen a march on their rivals for the signature of the former Brighton man and are going to pay a lot less than the £18m Benitez wanted to pay for the England international last Summer.

Benitez’s lack of involvement here could be an indication that Xabi Alonso is not leaving Anfield this Summer.
