Veteran midfielder Gareth Barry is facing his last possible move in football this summer, with West Brom’s 37-year old yet to sign a new deal with the relegated Baggies. The Birmingham Mail stated that the club have offered a new contract but it is yet to be signed, with the former England international seemingly considering his options in the summer transfer window. What Are The Odds looks at the Gareth Barry next club odds via BetVictor.
It could all be set to go full circle for Gareth Barry as the odds all point to the wily midfielder making a return to arch-rivals Aston Villa, with the two clubs set to meet once again in the Championship this upcoming season. Odds of 7/2 (4.50) suggest it’s early but likely and that it all may all depend on what Barry wants out of potentially his last season or two as a player. Is it Championship football or Premier League football?
If it’s top-flight action that Barry wants then Cardiff City are in the market next at 4/1 (5.00) and could be a tangible option to work with a manager that knows how utilise youth and experience to get the results required. No doubt Gareth Barry and Neil Warnock could pair up well, while the 37-year old offering invaluable experience to a Bluebirds side expected to struggle in just their second-stint in the Premier League.
Steven Gerrard could be making the call to Gareth Barry to come and play his part at Rangers. 6/1 (7.00) odds make it likely, albeit a bit of an outside punt, but it would make a lot of sense to bring the Gers closer to rivals Celtic in terms of experience - while also being an invaluable acquisition in helping the club’s bid to progress in the Europa League qualification rounds.
Wolverhampton Wanderers look set to spend big and add plenty of quality in a bid to thrive in their Premier League return and it’s maybe a little surprising to see Barry in at 12/1 (13.0). The midfielder will be mindful that week-in week-out football won’t be likely, but if he’s able to play his part in the Premier League again for a club in a city he lives then it might prove too tempting to turn-down.
