Barcelona have signed England Under-16 striker Louie Barry on a three-year contract from West Bromwich Albion.

The 16-year-old was offered a new contract at the Hawthorns but rejected the Baggies' offer in favour of a switch to Catalonia.

The move means that Albion will receive just £235,000 in compensation.

Nevertheless, the attacker, who plays primarily as a centre forward but can also play off the right wing, is expected to be in the headlines for altogether more positive reasons in the years ahead as his career develops in Spain.

It's also pretty much a collection game, where gamers tap to collect tappables (of course) to build up their inventory of blocks. A Microsoft or Xbox Live account is also required during registration to get updates on the future release of the beta version.

The striker had even undergone a medical in Paris last Thursday and was set to sign for the Ligue 1 side on Friday before a last-minute intervention from Barca saw him make a U-turn. 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.

Barry first rose to prominence past year when he scored 10 goals in five games for England Under-15s at a tournament in Italy.

Having been involved in a tug of war at club level, he is also set to be involved in another dispute regarding his commitment at global level.
