Leicester must consider recalling Barnes from West Brom once the transfer window opens

West Brom were able to salvage a draw last night against Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough having initially trailed the game 2-0.

On loan attacking midfielder Harvey Barnes completed his side’s comeback when he picked up the ball in his own half before going on a brilliant run and calmly dispatching past Cameron Dawson in the 87th minute to ensure West Brom left the game with a point.

And after another influential performance from Barnes, manager Darren Moore will now be fearing the possibility of Leicester City recalling the 20-year-old.

The Breakdown

Speaking on Harvey’s display after the game, Moore told the Leicester Mercury and the rest of the media: “It’s a great individual goal [for the equaliser].

“His running and carrying the ball is one of the strengths of his game. He’s got an eye for goal and he’s took his chance very well.”

With that in mind, it is clear that £1.35m-rated (via Transfermarkt) Harvey can definitely add something to the squad of his parent club and is a player Claude Puel should look towards in January if he is looking for attacking reinforcements.

Given the arrival of James Maddison from Norwich City back in the summer, who is currently thriving as the No.10 in the Foxes’ starting XI, Harvey may be better off staying at West Brom for the remainder of the season.

But with the Leicester youth product also capable of playing on the left and in central midfield, a recall in January is something well worth considering for Puel.
