Barry is a U16 international for England and has scored seven goals in his nine appearances. He was at West Bromwich Albion for six years until his contract expired this summer.

There was a moment when Barça thought the youngster would sign for PSG. He travelled to Paris and even underwent a medical before Barça firmed up their interest with an official offer.

Barry is eligible for both England and Northern Island and plays primarily as a striker but is capable of playing off the right wing.
