P141 CEEFAX 141 Thu 23 Jun 20:05/42 Gordon Cowans, the England midfield player who was linked with a transfer to Naples last month, is to stay with Aston Villa. After a meeting with manager Tony Barton, he agreed to sign a new three- year contract, which included the promise of a testimonial. Barton said: "We never wanted him to leave and deep down I am sure he always wanted to stay with us, but the Naples offer was difficult for him to refuse." Cowans described the Italian club's terms as "unbelievable". The deal fell through after a change in management.
