Leicester City have recalled midfielder Harvey Barnes from his loan spell at West Bromwich Albion.

The 21-year-old joined the Baggies after signing a four-year contract with Premier League side Leicester in July.

The deal at The Hawthorns was for a full season but had a break clause, which Leicester have decided to exercise.

Barnes has been an ever-present in West Brom's midfield, scoring nine goals in 26 Championship appearances.

Darren Moore's Albion are fourth in the table, three points off an automatic promotion place.

"He has clearly played an important role for the team over the first half of this season," said Moore.

"He has been a pleasure to work with and a popular figure within the club. We are proud to have played a role in his development and we have nothing but good wishes for him in his future career."
