Ireland's £2m demand could scupper Milner move

James Milner's transfer to Manchester City is on hold because Stephen Ireland, who is supposed to head to Aston Villa as part of the deal, is demanding a £2million pay-off from City to leave.

• Play Premier League fantasy

City and Villa have spent weeks negotiating over an acceptable fee for England midfielder Milner, with cash-rich City refusing to be held to ransom for the player's services.

After settling on an amount believed to be around £16million in cash plus £8million-rated playmaker Ireland, City have now been asked to fork out another £2million as a golden handshake for Ireland.

Reports indicate City officials have no intention of meeting the 23-year-old's demands, but the transfer cannot go ahead without his agreement.
