West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore has revealed that he has still not had any contact with Leicester City regarding Harvey Barnes, as reported on the Birmingham Mail.
The Foxes have a clause in the season-long loan deal which allows them to recall the Englishman, with Leicester boss Claude Puel contemplating whether to take him back to the King Power Stadium this month or not.
But Moore has claimed that Leicester have not been in contact with the Baggies. When asked if there have been any talks between the two clubs, he said:
No, because we’ve been outside the window. We knew that Harvey was here now. The window’s back open. We’ll talk to Leicester about Harvey and once we know the decision we’ll notify you guys.
Harvey’s been an excellent player for West Brom, he’s showed the qualities why we brought him to the club.
When Leicester manager Puel was speaking about Barnes, he said:
We will see…I don’t think there will be a lot of moves, but I think there will be a few adjustments for the team, a few may come back on loan. The most important thing is to develop this young team.
Barnes was in good form for the Baggies at Ewood Park but could not inspire his side to victory as they fell to a 2-1 defeat.
Barnes was a constant threat and got past Rovers’ right-back Elliot Bennett on numerous occasions and also won the penalty to get the Baggies back into the match.
