Aston Villa sign Barcelona forward Barry

English Premier League club Aston Villa have confirmed the signing of teenager Louie Barry from Barcelona.

Barry spent just six months at Barcelona after joining the Spanish giants from West Brom in July.

Barry will now go straight into the academy set-up at Villa.

Villa's academy manager Mark Harrison told VillaTV: "It (Louie's signing) sends a powerful message about the ambition of this football club.

"We're delighted - Louie is a local person and his family are all Villa fans, as is Louie.

"He is still a very young man but as he's developed, he's always been one player that you always recognise as having outstanding attributes. He's got a fantastic mentality, he's desperate to do well for this football club.

"He's really driven, he's got great family support, but in terms of what he can achieve, we firmly believe that he can be an outstanding number nine for this football club."
