Barnard joins Latics

31 January 2013

Loan move sealed for Saints' striker

Latics have completed their third deadline-day transfer with the capture of Southampton striker Lee Barnard.

The 28-year-old has moved to Boundary Park on loan for the rest of the season subject to Premier League and Football League approval.

Barnard played for Bournemouth against Latics in November during his half-season loan from Saints.

He kicked off his career at Tottenham Hotspur where he spent six years.

It was for Southend United where Barnard's career exploded and his goalscoring exploits earned a big-money move to Saints in 2010.

Barnard has made 40 starts and 28 substitute appearances for Saints scoring 24 goals.
