Leicester midfielder Harvey Barnes joins West Brom on season-long loan

West Brom have completed the season-long loan signing of Harvey Barnes from Leicester.

The midfielder has signed a new four-year deal at the Foxes and has immediately moved to The Hawthorns.

“He is an exciting young player – one that I think our supporters will enjoy watching,” Albion boss Darren Moore told the club’s official website.

“We’ve got a lot of exciting youngsters at this club and Harvey now adds to that group.

“He’s got good experience of the Championship already and I am thrilled at the prospect of him adding his talents to our group. I couldn’t be happier that we have been able to bring him in.”

The 20-year-old Foxes academy graduate made his senior debut at Porto in the Champions League in 2016 and also spent time on loan at MK Dons that season.

He also made 23 appearances, scoring five times, for Barnsley last campaign before being recalled and featuring five times under Leicester boss Claude Puel in the second half of the season.
