Barcelona: Louie Barry signs from West Brom

"He plays at centre-forward, although he can also play on the right wing, and has signed from West Bromwich Albion, his club since he was six years old".

The La Liga champions say he will play for their Under-19 squad next season.

Though Barry is yet to make a first-team appearance for West Brom, his signature was being chased by a number of elite clubs across the continent, who were impressed by his stellar form on the worldwide stage.

The move means that Albion will receive just £235,000 in compensation.

Paris Saint-Germain pushed the hardest and it was reported that he'd had a medical with the French club, but Barcelona were ultimately able to agree a deal with the teenager.

Born in Sutton Coldfield in the West Midlands, he had spent the last 10 years with the Baggies, who were desperate to keep him on their books.

But it is Barça who have secured his signing and on Thursday made the announcement of the player who will now be part of the Juvenil A side having signed a three-year contract.

Having been involved in a tug of war at club level, he is also set to be involved in another dispute regarding his commitment at worldwide level.
