Leicester boost: Harvey Barnes on verge of agreeing new contract with Foxes

Barnes’ Leicester City stint

Harvey Barnes is a product of Leicester’s academy.

After being promoted to their under-23 side in 2017, Barnes would go on to be loaned out to several sides including MK Dons and West Brom.

Barnes would eventually return to Leicester in 2019 and has since been fighting to secure a first-team berth.

And in recent years, that is exactly what Barnes has done. The now 23-year-old would score six and assists eight in 36 league outings during 2019/20.

Barnes then had a fine start to 2020/21, scoring nine and assisting four in 25 league ties. However, the winger’s season would be cut short due to injury.

He has since returned to action and looked pretty sharp in the Foxes’ 1-0 win over Wolves at the weekend.
