- Leicester City midfielder Harvey Barnes has signed a new four-year contract
- The 20-year-old will also join West Bromwich Albion on a season-long loan
- The England Under-20s midfielder made his senior debut in a UEFA Champions League game against Porto in 2016
- Barnes could make his West Brom bow against Bolton on 4 August
The 20-year-old Academy graduate, who has been with the Football Club since the age of nine, made his senior debut in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League and impressed on loan with MK Dons in League 1 the same season.
He will now join up with Darren Moore’s West Bromwich Albion side as they look to mount a promotion challenge from a highly competitive division for 2018/19.
Barnes scored a number of impressive goals for Barnsley.
England Under-20s international Barnes has already experienced Championship football, having played 23 times and scored five goals for Barnsley in the division last season.
He then returned to the Leicester City fold, where he appeared five times for Claude Puel’s side in the second half of the campaign.
Barnes underlined his promise with a series of eye-catching performances in the MK Dons midfield in 2016/17, when he scored six times in just 21 appearances before ending the season as top scorer for England Under-20s in their triumphant Toulon Tournament campaign.
He is also one Academy graduate to have represented the Club at UEFA Champions League level.
Having made his Leicester City debut away to Porto in the UEFA Champions League earlier that season and being named Development Squad Player of the Season, his progress has continued.
Along with his experience with Leicester City and Barnsley, Barnes also won the Premier League 2 Player of the Month award for his outstanding displays in March.
He will be eligible to make his West Bromwich Albion debut in a home Championship fixture against Bolton Wanderers on Saturday 4 August.
