West Bromwich Albion have had their worst fears realised on Friday as Leicester reportedly triggered an option to recall from his loan spell at the Hawthorns. Rumours of such a potential call from Claude Puel have been around for a while, but many at held out hope that they would be able to hold onto the talented 21-year-old. Unfortunately that is not the case with the Foxes having confirmed that Barnes has been recalled from his spell at the Hawthorns. This is a huge blow to the club’s hopes of promotion to the Premier League this season, with Barnes contributing nine goals and eight assists to their Championship campaign so far. While players like Jay Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle may have scored more, Barnes has been the real star for the Baggies this season, and losing him at this stage in the season is a bitter pill to swallow, as illustrated by the reaction from some fans below.
