The second Aston Villa were linked with having an interest in signing Barcelona youngster Louie Barry, given his previous West Bromwich Albion ties, it was always going to be an interesting story to follow.

If Villa Pulled Off This Deal It Would Infuriate West Brom

The original speculation mentioned a Β£1.5million fee which was instant profit for Barca given they only picked him up over the summer, and by reports, they still haven’t paid West Brom the Β£235,000 odd thousand they owe in compensation.

That was always going to be the crux of media fallout and the press certainly haven’t disappointed, with the Mirror rather bizarrely reporting that West Brom are now investigating whether they can sue us over the deal, if we bring him on board.

Now that’s a bizarre claim for a variety of reasons – not least because we have nothing to do with his original switch and their issue lies squarely with the Nou Camp outfit – and I’m pretty sure the Boardroom at The Hawthorns are well aware of that, but hey ho, it makes for a good story doesn’t it.
