Revealed: Majority of West Brom fans think Sako can replace Barnes

Harvey Barnes has been a key figure in West Bromwich Albion’s promotion charge at this early stage of the season.

Darren Moore recruited the 20-year-old from Leicester City in the summer transfer window.

A season-long loan deal was agreed, but as part of the arrangement the Foxes are permitted to recall Barnes in January.

According to¬†PA Sports journalist Nick Mashiter, Leicester intend to do just that after being impressed by the youngster’s performances.

Barnes has scored four goals and created two assists in 14 appearances in all competitions.

He naturally plays as a winger, but in Moore’s system at The Hawthorns he has been positioned in the No.10 role.

The exciting talent has linked up well with Dwight Gayle and Jay Rodriguez, so if he does depart in three months’ time the club will have to fill the void.

Bakary Sako recently signed for the Baggies on a free transfer after leaving Crystal Palace at the end of the season.

The experienced player is versatile in the middle and final third, so we asked you if he could fill in for Barnes, and the majority of fans polled are confident in his ability.
