Leicester City are considering a loan move for another young player, Harvey Barnes – that’s according to the Leicester Mercury.
The 20-year old is apparently rated highly across the East Midlands, though even that’s not enough for him to nail down a spot in Craig Shakespeare’s reserves.

Barnes has only just come back from a successful loan spell at MK Dons, and having signed a four-year deal at the King Power Stadium, he could be off to the second or third division of English Football again. So much for the new deal.
The young Englishman was one of the notable absences in Leicester City’s 1-0 win over Luton Town as Riyad Mahrez netted again, as if to tease the Foxes and make them realise the pain of what and who are they going to lose very soon.
While other young players enjoyed some time in the middle, Harvey Barnes , as was confirmed by the gigantic Michael Appleton, had been sent to France with the Development Squad to see what he’s up to before making any decision over his future (if any). He said:
"“The development squad have got a couple of games over there, and he can get a couple of 90 minutes under his belt.“That was important for H. He’s someone I knew quite a bit about before I came to the club because of his loan spell at MK Dons last year.“He was a player that when I was at Oxford, we tried to get in a couple of times. He’ll get minutes under his belt in France, he’ll come back next week and we will have an indication of where he’s going to stand, whether it be in the squad or whether it’s going to go back out on loan.”"
Another young player set to bite the dust is Tom Lawrence. At 23, he has had the misfortune of touring nearly the whole of England and has struggled for stability particularly since his transfer to Leicester City from Manchester United.
Lawrence was named Ipswich Town’s player of the year last season after he scored 11 goals and assisted equally as many in 39 appearances. Derby County are the favourites to sign him.
