- Leicester City recall Harvey Barnes from West Bromwich Albion loan
- Barnes contributed nine goals and six assists in 26 Championship appearances this season
- The 21-year-old Academy graduate signed a new four-year deal in the summer
- He will be available for Claude Puel’s side at the weekend, subject to Premier League approval
The 21-year-old has scored nine times in 26 appearances for the Baggies in the Championship this term, as well as contributing six assists to help keep Darren Moore’s side in the automatic promotion race.
Barnes, who came through the ranks of Leicester City’s Academy, signed a new four-year contract with the Club in the summer ahead of his loan to West Brom, where he has built on an already impressive reputation.
He made his senior debut in the 2016/17 UEFA Champions League away to Porto and went on to score six times in 21 appearances for MK Dons in a loan spell in League One later the season.
After ending the campaign as top scorer for England’s Under-20s in the Toulon Tournament victory, Barnes gained further experience with a loan move to Barnsley in the second tier. He scored five times in 23 appearances for the Tykes.
He made his Premier League debut for Leicester City in April against Southampton and went on to feature against Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur in the Foxes’ final two games of the last campaign.
Subject to Premier League approval, Barnes will be eligible for Leicester City’s Premier League fixture against Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
