Aston Villa announced the signing of promising teenage striker Louie Barry from Barcelona for a fee of about one million euros ($1.1 million) on Thursday, reports AFP.

Birmingham-born Barry joined the Spanish champions from West Bromwich Albion in July 2019.

The highly rated 16-year-old was reported to be unsettled by changes to Barcelona’s coaching set-up and jumped at the chance to join Villa, the club he supported as a child.
