Barcelona sign England youngster Barry from West Brom
Barcelona have fended off reported interest from other European heavyweights to sign England youth international Louie Barry.
Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain were rumoured to be eyeing the West Brom forward, along with several Premier League clubs.
But it is Barca who have secured the 16-year-old, who will now be part of the Juvenil A side having signed a three-year contract.
Barry has spent 10 years at West Brom, and made his debut for the Championship club's Under-23 team last season.
