Ex-Barnet boss Martin Allen will be making a move for Dean Sinclair after the tribunal hearing, according to reports.

The much disliked Allen (by Bees fans), who left Barnet in the play-offs of the Conference in 2004 to join North London rivals Brentford, may make the bid to sign energetic Deano from Barnet after a displaying an impressive performance in a black and amber shirt this season.

Sinclair was a regular in the team that finished mid-table in the league but scouts were drawn to his attention in Barnet’s historic FA Cup run.

In the next few days, a tribunal will set a fee for Sinclair’s new team to pay if they are to sign the youngster, with the sum believed to be around £80,000. Although this is more than most people expected, it is still massively undervalueing his ability and potential; a fee of £150,000 at its minimum, is a much more accurate reflection on him. But Barnet cannot expect any favours, with tribunals infamously known for their low valuations on players.

As well as Championship side Leicester, also interested in the attacking midfielder are fellow Championship sides QPR and Sheffield Wednesday, and also recently promoted Derby County, of the Premiership, as well as former club Norwich City.
