Leicester City will make a decision on whether to recall Harvey Barnes from his loan at West Brom in January, according to the Leicester Mercury.
The Foxes’ boss Claude Puel has said he is yet to decide on what to do with the promising winger and will evaluate the situation in a couple of months time.
The former Southampton boss said ““For the moment it is a good opportunity to continue his way, with good intensity, good focus, to find good consistency, to continue to improve. We will see the next transfer window but I am happy for the moment.”
Barnes, who is 20 years-old, joined the Baggies on a season-long loan in August to gain some more regular first-team action and has hit the ground running straight away. He has scored five goals in 14 games altogether and it has been this impressive form which has sparked rumours of Leicester planning to recall him.
He has played six times for the Foxes’ first-team so far in his career. Barnes joined the 2016 Premier League champions in at the age of nine and rose through the youth ranks at the King Power Stadium.
Barnes enjoyed loan spells at MK Dons and Barnsley prior to joining West Brom in the summer. He was somewhat of an unknown quantity when he made the switch to the Hawthorns but he has been an instant hit for Darren Moore’s side.
The Baggies are currently 3rd in the Championship and are just a single point off the top. Harvey Barnes is an integral part of their side and keeping hold of him will go a long way in helping in their promotion push.
