Defender Ricardo Almeida Santos has joined Barnet for an undisclosed fee.

Peterborough United centre back Ricardo Almeida Santos will join Sky Bet League Two side Barnet for an undisclosed fee when the transfer window opens on January 1st 2017.

Santos has passed a medical at the Hive and links up with his new team-mates ahead of the first fixture in the New Year for the Bees.

Manager Grant McCann believes it is the right move for the former Thurrock man at this stage in his career.

"Ricardo was a bit disallusioned about not playing so this move suits all parties. It is a good move for him and a good club to be at. Obviously we are doing all we can at this moment in time to bring in another central defender to compliment what we have and with Jack Baldwin injured, that is a priority at this stage."

We would like to thank Ricardo for his efforts for the club and wish him well for the future.
