Barnes is focused on continuing his impressive start at Albion and then kicking on with Leicester, a club he says he loves.
“I'm playing most Saturdays now so I miss the Leicester games, but when they're on different days, it's good to watch," he told the Birmingham Mail.
“I'll always go if I'm back in midweek. I'll go to the games with a few of my mates, too.
“Growing up in the city, playing for them, I've got a real love for the club.
“The same with England. When the World Cup comes around we're all fans aren't we?
“It doesn't matter too much about your profession. I think everyone just comes together and forgets about everything else and follows the team.
“It's England as a whole.
“The England manager has been looking at Leicester as a club with English players who could progress and it will be great to be a part of that. I'd like to follow that path, definitely."
