Barcelona have signed highly rated England youth worldwide Louie Barry on a three-year contract.

Barcelona have signed the highly sought-after 16-year-old striker Louie Barry.

- When does the transfer window close?

Barry reportedly had a medical with PSG before Barcelona stepped in at the last minute and convinced him to join the ranks at La Masia, the club's famed academy.

"Next season he will be part of Barca's U19 squad".

Birmingham-born Barry, 16, had been with the Baggies since he was six and turned down the offer of a professional contract with the Championship club.

Barcelona will have to pay at least €130,000 to West Brom in training compensation for Barry, per FIFA's regulations, although sources have indicated to ESPN FC they are willing to pay more as a goodwill gesture. He has penned a three-year deal with La Blaugrana after starring for the Republic of Ireland Under-16s, for whom he netted a brace last September against Bulgaria.

Despite this, the Catalan giants have announced the signing of the England youth worldwide, who scored six goals in nine games for the Young Lions, as well as having scored seven times in the Under-18 Premier League last season.

He's one of a number of England youth internationals to complete big moves this week.
