West Bromwich Albion manager Darren Moore has revealed the club will support Leicester City loanee, Harvey Barnes after the death of Leicester owner Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.

The Thai businessman lost his life alongside two others, a pilot and a passenger in a helicopter crash which occurred just outside the King Power Stadium last Saturday.

Following the tragic incident, Barnes tweeted an emotional message in honour of the late Foxes owner.

Moore confirmed he had a discussion with the midfielder this week to make sure he was coping well with the incident.

“We’ve had a chat, myself and Harvey, about the situation,” Moore said, according to ExpressandStar.

“And he knows my door’s always open if he wants to talk.

“The staff, we have a close bond here so it’s not just me he can speak to. The players and the support staff.

“We are supporting Harvey in this, but he seems fine.

“And we’ll cooperate with Leicester with whatever they need with regards to Harvey.

Leicester City have confirmed that the club’s first team players will be attending the burial ceremony of their late owner in Thailand following their Premier League game against Cardiff City on Saturday.
