Saville told Barnet's official website: "I first heard about Barnet's interest a week go. "I am delighted to be here and looking forward to playing some league games." Saville is Bees boss Lawrie Sanchez's third defensive recruit in a the space of four days after Reading's Michael Hector and Paul Downing of West Brom arrived on Friday.
