A busy 24-48-hours or so at Barnet has seen three players placed on the transfer list, two leave the club and a further two arrive.

Andy Yiadom, Mauro Vilhete and Ben Tomlinson are now all free to leave the Bees, be that on loan or permanently after being transfer-listed with Aaron McLean leaving after turning down a new deal with the contract of Tamille Roache ended by mutual consent.

Martin Allen told the Official Website Tomlinson is coming back to Barnet as Tranmere aren’t keeping him but he will be allowed to leave.

‘At lunchtime today I’ve had a chat with Tranmere Rovers manager Gary Brabin, and Ben Tomlinson won’t be staying up at Prenton Park. He has done very well up there, but Ben will be returning to us on Monday. I’ve already had several enquiries for Ben, and we will be alerting all clubs this afternoon that Ben is available for loan or transfer.’

He’s back to ‘turn it around’ thought and get his career going ‘in the right direction’ again.

With Yiadom out of contract at the end of the season, with the defender rejecting the club’s offer of a new contract, he’s among those transfer listed with Allen adding, also on the Official Website.

‘As he is out of contract this summer, we felt that it was best to make Andy available now. He has been inspirational and has not only been an excellent player, but is a great person. He has a good character, an excellent work ethic, and a desire to better himself and will be sadly missed, but we have to evolve and move on.’

Coming to the club are Northampton midfielder Chris Hackett and MK Dons midfielder Mark Randall, both arriving until the end of the season.

32-year-old Hackett, who has managed nine appearances for the Cobblers this season and scored once, has come in on loan until the end of the season with 26-year-old Randall, who hasn’t featured for MK Dons this season, signing a permanent short-term deal until the summer.

A third arrival was confirmed today with Alie Sesay secured on an 18-month contract with the defender signing from Leicester.
