‘Would’ve been Championship POTY’ – Many West Brom fans react as transfer news comes to light

Barkley has endured a difficult period in his career over the last few years with Chelsea and he has found game time with the European champions limited.

However, it is believed that Barkley’s wages meant that the Baggies did not have the resources needed to make a deal happen for him before the window closes.
