The 17-year-old hasn’t managed to force his way into the first team fold at the Parisens.

However, Barry has been involved in the club’s UEFA Youth League competition, a tournament our youngsters have won twice.

Barry has shown his versatility as he’s able to play at centre-back, right-back or defensive midfield. Something that players like Cesar Azpilicueta would be impressed with.
