I think it is a good move if he does sign, albeit on loan.

It's certainly an upgrade on McLean and his stats are impressive so far.

The e and s have just confirmed he is coming and should be in tomorrow’s Barnsley squad.

Let’s hope he is ready to tear the division apart next season. Hopefully an upgrade on the hard working but limited McClean.

Am I missing something here? He is in tomorrows Barnsley squad?

If we can get Burke firing on all cylinders, having him and Barnes in the same side (assuming Darren would be brave enough to do that) would frighten the opposition to death. I'd rather it wasn't a loan, but the main requirements for a good loan signing are quality and attitude. It looks like Barnes may well have both of those so, if it's a season-long loan with no recall option, I think it's worth doing.

Leicester have a ridiculously large squad for a team that doesn't have European football they have 3 left wingers Gray Albrighton and Diabete.  Unless and until they thin that out a bit there is little or no chance Barnes would get a look in so the loan makes sense. Longer term a lot will depend on what league we end up in and obviously how well he does.

If he’s half as good as Giles Barnes we’re in for a treat.

Let's hope he doesn't have the same level of problems with injuries as Giles did. I've had a quick look on YouTube at him and he looks a good solid player. I'd hope there's a view to a permanent in the agreement although I doubt it as Puel clearly rates him hence why he recalled him last season. I dont like the idea of simply loaning him to help a premier league club such as Leicester out and not having a long term plan. Alot has been made about how he is a winger but he can also play as a central attacking midfielder by all accounts. Maybe he is a alternative or back up to Morrison and isn't being signed simply to play as a winger. For what it's worth that's a area we have a few options in. I can't see him keeping Phillips or Burke out the side (I can see Burke being a key figure this year as he Is proven in the championship)

He's just signed a new 4 year deal with Leicester ahead of his loan move to us.

Looks like this may well be a 1 season only move. I'm still very happy with this signing, perfect type of player to offer us some attacking options in midfield.

He certainly looks capable of doing both of those things so, if we get him for a full season without there being a recall option, he'll hopefully be able to contribute a lot.

Not sure what to make of this. Another sign of how far back we've come due to relaxation. No doubt that 5 million will vanish

Shame it's only a loan. Still, lots of water to flow under the bridge, lets see how things pan out. Glad to have the kid aboard.

Quite telling that he has just signed a four year deal before coming to us. In the unlikely event that he is available then it will certainly cost us [or whoever wants him].

Yep. Unless he's a disaster then we won't want him anyway. Smart move from Leicester. Unlikely to be anything more than a one season deal in all likelihood.

He's got a good record on his previous loans. A good and reasonably cheap addition to the squad. No complaints from me. We're unlikely to splash the cash majorly until we free some of it up in the form of Rondon or Chadli.
