Leicester City are set to deal a huge blow to West Bromwich Albion by recalling prolific youngster Harvery Barnes from his loan spell at the club.
The 21-year-old has been in electric form this season, racking up a stunning nine goals and eight assists in all competitions for the Baggies and proving to be a key part in their battle for promotion to the Premier League.
News of Leicester's plan for Barnes comes from the Telegraph journalist John Percy, who revealed the news on Twitter. Percy wrote: "
“If he is ready for this we will see in January whether yes or no, and the balance of the squad and whether there are moves or not.
“He is a player from the Academy with good attributes and qualities. I appreciate the character from him in the first half of the season. He showed a good clinical edge, and we’ve had a problem with this.
After the sale of Vicente Iborra to Villarreal and the loan departure of Fousseni Diabate, there could be a space for Barnes in Leicester's first-team squad.
However, this is not the first time that the 21-year-old has been in this situation.
