Mansfield Town striker Adam Birchall has completed a permanent move to Barnet.
Mansfield Town striker Adam Birchall has completed a permanent move to League Two rivals Barnet.
Birchall originally moved to Underhill on loan in late November and has scored three goals in eight appearances.
Bees manager Paul Fairclough had hinted at a permanent deal and has now signed the forward until the end of the season.
Following Tresor Kandol's sale to Leeds United earlier in the week, Fairclough is hoping Birchall can replicate the departed attacker's impact.
"Although they are contrasting players, Adam has had as big an impact as Tresor had when he came in," said Fairclough.
"Adam gives us a different dimension. Tresor was very prolific and strong in the air, whereas Adam is quick and can get behind people."
