The Manchester City midfielder Gareth Barry has said that he is extremely impressed with both Jack Rodwell and Javi Garcia. The two players were signed by the club in the summer transfer window for combined outlay of more than £ 30 million.

The former Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell has been regarded as one of the brightest young prospects to come from the famed Everton youth academy. Meanwhile, the Benfica midfielder Javi Garcia has developed a reputation for being an extremely competitive defensive midfielder, who can also score a few goals. The 24-year-old was hugely impressive in the Champions League last season for Benfica.

The former Aston Villa midfielder Gareth Barry reckons that these two players will provide a lot of strength to the squad, as they look to retain the title they won last season. He has said that he is extremely impressed by the way Jack Rodwell has been able to settle at his new club. Javi Garcia scored in the debut match for his new club Manchester city against Stoke. Gareth Barry has praised Javi Garcia by saying that his English is already perfect and he is confident about settling quickly in the Manchester city first-team.

“Javi García and Jack Rodwell already seem to be settling in well. I know Jack better because he’s an English guy and been playing in the Premier League for a few years and he’s a great addition to the squad. I think he’s done really well in the first few games he’s played and he seems to have bedded in nicely. I’m sure that the longer he’s here and the more games he plays, he’ll get better and better,” said Gareth Barry in a recent interview. Barry has also said that he will certainly miss the Dutch international Nigel de Jong, who left for AC Milan.
