Martinez In No Rush To Make Barry Move Permanent

Roberto Martinez has revealed that he is in no rush to make Gareth Barry’s loan move to Everton a permanent one and that the matter will be dealt with at the end of the season.

Barry joined the Toffees on a season long loan after helping them win the title in 2012 and the FA Cup the previous year.

Martinez however does not want to distract the English midfielder and wants him to concentrate on the second-half of the season.

“Gareth has been vitally important in what we have achieved so far this season and I would like that to be the case for many, many years to come, but that is a conversation we are going to have in the summer,” he is quoted as saying in The Guardian. 

“The agreement was for the season and for Gareth to just enjoy his football and I don’t want to change that.”

“I don’t think there is a real need. There is trust about what we agreed and all I want now is for Gareth to continue concentrating on his football for the second half of the season. I don’t want him thinking about his future, which might distract him from enjoying his football and that was the agreement we had. In the summer we will talk.”
