Barry price 'too high', says Liverpool's Parry

Gareth Barry's proposed move to Liverpool has been thrown into further doubt after chief executive Rick Parry admitted: 'The price quoted is too high.'

The Aston Villa midfielder has been poised for a switch to Anfield all summer but the Reds have been unwilling to match the asking price of £18million.

Last month Villa set Liverpool a deadline to submit an acceptable offer but none was forthcoming and the midlanders then announced the deal was off.

However, a few days later manager Martin O'Neill conceded Barry's heart was still set on the move, leaving the way open for Liverpool.

But the expected transfer has still not happened amid speculation Liverpool's American owners are not willing to fork out the money following Robbie Keane's £20.3million move from Tottenham.

In a statement, Parry insisted George Gillett and Tom Hicks are backing Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez.

'There has been a lot of comment regarding our position with regards to Gareth Barry,' Parry said.

'This is not about questioning the manager's judgment or the ability of a particular player. The owners have clearly demonstrated throughout the year they are willing to back Rafa in the transfer market and will continue to do so.

'It is obviously the selling club's prerogative to put whatever price they want on the player, but on this occasion Liverpool think the price quoted is too high.'
