Roy Keane returns to the City Ground as his Sunderland side take on Nottingham Forest in the Carling Cup tonight, live on Sky Sports 2 at 19:45.

Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry has ended months of uncertainty about his future by opting to stay with the Midlands club.

The England international has been a transfer target for Liverpool since the end of last season, but the two clubs were unable to agree on a fee.

Now, his agent, Alex Black, has confirmed that he will not be moving during the current transfer window.

“After much speculation I can confirm that Gareth Barry will not leave Aston Villa before the transfer window closes,” Black told Sky Sports News

“Gareth made the decision to stay two weeks ago and informed Aston Villa of his intentions.

“During this time discussions have taken place to decide the best way forward for all parties.

“Any talks regarding potential new contracts at Aston Villa will not take place until the end of the season.

“Gareth wants to concentrate on playing on the best of his ability for Aston Villa, and we hope this draws a line under the matter.”
