West Bromwich Albion

Barnett completed a move to Championship team West Bromwich Albion in July 2007 for an initial fee of £2.5m fee, with a further £250,000 depending on appearances. West Brom should also be due to pay Luton a further £250,000 because they gained promotion to the Premier League after the 2007–08 season. He signed a four-year contract, keeping him at the club until 2011. Barnett made his Albion debut in a 2–1 defeat away at Burnley on the opening day of the 2007–08 season. He scored his first goal for the club in a 3–2 victory away at Scunthorpe United on 22 September 2007. Barnett's performance in Albion's 2–1 away win against Leicester City on 8 December 2007 earned him a place in the Championship Team of the Week.

On 4 November 2009, Barnett joined West Brom's Championship rivals Coventry City on loan until January. He had made just two substitute appearances in the league at The Hawthorns in the 2009–10 season. Barnett made his Sky Blues debut on 6 November 2009 against Derby County. After going back to West Brom for a few days, Barnett rejoined Coventry on loan on 1 February 2010.

He played 20 games while on loan at Coventry but was not a success with the supporters and conceded three penalties, two of which saw him sent off.
