Tottenham are preparing to swoop for Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry according to The Express.

The England international’s future at the club is currently uncertain with the City expected to appoint Manuel Pellegrini in the coming days.

It is thought that the Chilean manager will want to put his stamp on the team and that could lead to the ageing midfielder being shown the Etihad exit door.

Tottenham are reportedly ready to offer him an escape route as they look for a replacement for Scott Parker. Parker suffered an injury hit season and the that could persuade Spurs to sell him to Sunderland.

Barry is seen as a less fragile and risky replacement and wouldn’t be likely to cost too much. It is thought that a bid of £4 million would be enough to persuade City to part ways with the former Aston Villa man.

Barry has just one year remaining on his current deal and it is thought that City may well decide to cash in on him now rather than risk losing him for nothing in a year’s time.

Stoke are also reportedly interested in Barry with Mark Hughes a firm admirer of the midfielder and are likely to compete with Spurs for the player’s signature.
