West Brom’s loan star Harvey Barnes has returned to parent club Leicester City, after an impressive first half of the season at The Hawthorns.

West Brom announced on their club website that loan star Harvey Barnes has returned to parent club Leicester City. The England youngster returns to the Premier League side after starring for The Baggies throughout the first half of the season.
