Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy has praised England midfielder Gareth Barry following our 1-0 defeat to Manchester City.

Barry jumped the sinking ship which is Aston Villa over the summer and joined up with free spending Manchester City.

Many thought it to be an odd move considering the previous connections with Liverpool and even Liverpool boss Benitez claimed that money talks.

Either way he left Villa which was a good choice and joined the revolution at Manchester City. Mick also spoke of the tremendous spending power City have had in recent months: ‘Twenty-two million is more than we’ve got for the whole summer spending, ‘Wright-Phillips, Robinho, Adebayor – take Tevez off and put Bellamy on. Do me a favour. Gareth Barry was terrific. If there’s a better midfield player around I’ve yet to see him.’ McCarthy told the Daily Mail.

In an ironic twist, Manchester City are set to give us a bit of a financial boost.

As Man City continue to flash the cash, their next target is Ex-Wolves defender Lescott.

He is now undergoing a medical after the teams agreed a fee yesterday and Wolves are set for a slice due to a sell-on clause when he left Molineux.
