However, according to Sky Sports, West Brom and the FA are yet to complete the paperwork required for Barry to play in Spain.

It is also understood the Championship club consider the compensation fee of £235,000 to be totally insufficient.

A Barcelona statement described the wonderkid as one of the most exciting talents in English football.

Barry, who joined West Brom’s academy aged six, was a Republic of Ireland youth international before switching allegiance to England.
