Aston Villa coughing up big for Barcelona striker Louie Barry

Aston Villa are coughing up big for Barcelona striker Louie Barry.

The Daily Mail says Villa hope to complete the signing of Barry from Barcelona at the start of this week.

The 16-year-old only left West Brom for Barcelona last June and was well regarded by the Spanish side despite being the youngest member of their U19 squad.

However, changes in coaching personnel have left him unsettled and he has opted to return to England with Villa.

Other clubs, including Tottenham, had shown interest but the England youth international is returning close to his former home.

A fee of £3m has been mentioned.
