West Brom fans on Twitter react to new signing Harvey Barnes

West Brom have completed the signing of exciting young winger Harvey Barnes on a season-long loan deal from Leicester.

Barnes comes in to the Hawthorns just after Stoke announced the signing of Baggies winger James McClean for ยฃ5m, with many West Brom fans glad to see the back of the controversial Irish international.

Leicester’s academy graduate Barnes spent the first half of last season on loan at Barnsley scoring five goals and providing four assists in 23 Championship games before being recalled by the Premier League club. The 5ft 9in tall 20-year-old then went on to make three substitute appearances in the Premier League towards the end of the season.

The young Englishman can play on the left or in the centre and could well be a shrewd signing by Baggies boss Darren Moore, who can then use the McClean funds to strengthen other areas of his squad.

West Brom fans on Twitter were buzzing with the signing. Check out some of their best reactions below.
