Barcelona have announced the signing of highly rated English teenager Louie Barry from West Bromwich Albion.

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.

Barry joins the growing number of English youngsters who have moved to foreign clubs, such as Borussia Dortmund's 19-year-old winger Jadon Sancho.

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

It's undoubtedly a dream move for the youngster and it's likely he'll be the name on people's lips for years to come.

Barry had been with the Baggies since the age of six but has recently turned down the offer of a professional contract with his boyhood club.

He was given a chance to impress in Barca's La Masia academy - equivalent to the U18 football while he was playing at West Brom.

This added to the heights he reached with his national side past year, winning the golden boot with three goals to his name as his side won the Val-de-Marne.

Barry first rose to prominence past year when he scored 10 goals in five games for England Under-15s at a tournament in Italy.

As for West Brom, he netted four times and accumulated three assists during last season's Under-18 Premier League.
