Loaned out to Barnsley by Leicester City at the beginning of the season, Harvey Barnes has impressed with the Championship side (5 goals and 4 assists in 23 appearances) and has been recalled by his parent club during the January transfer window.
“When some players, a young player, loan with different clubs I look at them to feel their quality. I think Harvey can bring something for the team. Harvey needs to continue to work and if we can help him develop with the team in the training session and perhaps some game time it will be a good thing for him. But he has good quality and what he can do on the pitch with Barnsley was amazing”, the Leicester coach Claude Puel said.
Just few days after his return, the Toulon Tournament 2017 joint-top scorer has been handed his first Leicester start on this week-end during the FA Cup game against Fleetwood Town (0-0).
Like the team, the 20-year-old midfielder hasn’t produced his best performance of the season but he will probably have other opportunities during the rest of the season to repay the faith shown in him by his coach.
