Aston Villa defender Barry: We’re all confident we’re moving in the right direction

    He said: “It is 10 years since I joined the club and you don’t see that too often.

    “I have signed a four-year contract and I would like to see that out and hopefully there are a few more years to come after that.”

    He continued: “We’re all confident we’re moving in the right direction and with a few signings this summer we’ll be ready to go again in August.

    “The manager has already brought some quality players to the club and I’m sure he’ll be looking to add to that before we come back for pre-season training.

    “This season is hopefully a little taster for the fans. Finishing 11th is a big improvement from 16th and we will be looking to make that same improvement and finish in a European place.”
