Aston Villa have offered an improved contract to Charney. However, Charney’s representatives are stalling the negotiations. Consequently, Steven Gerrard has excluded him from the pre-season squad of Aston Villa.
“Carney is yet to sign a contract offer that has been in place for some time,” said Gerrard. “I’ve decided the best thing would be to continue his training program back at Bodymoor.”
According to Fabrizio Romano, Barcelona are the club most interested in signing the player. Moreover, Dortmund and the Manchester clubs are also in talks with Villa officials regarding Charney.
