Albion teen ace gets contract offer

West Bromwich Albion have offered teenage sensation Louie Barry a three-year deal to try and keep him from the clutches of Barcelona.

West Bromwich Albion have offered teenage sensation Louie Barry a three-year deal to try and keep him from the clutches of Barcelona.

Sky Sports are reporting the Baggies have made a virtually unprecedented contract offer to the youngster, who turned 16 on Friday.

It has been claimed the Championship club have taken advantage of new UEFA rules to put on the table a one-year scholarship followed by a two-year professional contract in a bid to ensure he stays at the Hawthorns.

Barry, who has played for England and the Republic of Ireland at youth level, is tipped to be a huge future star and won the Golden Boot while on international duty with England’s Under-15s in a youth tournament in Italy last year.

He has attracted the attention of some of the world’s top clubs already and is believed to have been in Barcelona to meet Nou Camp officials at least twice.

West Brom are unsure if they will be able to keep the striker, who has been training with the youth teams since he was six, but are doing all they can to try and persuade him he may be best served continuing his development where he is.

Barry has yet to be included in a senior Albion squad but did score four goals and got three assists for the Under-18s last season, despite being just 15.
