Leeds United beefed up their strike force on loan deadline day with the capture of Barnet hit-man Tresor Kandol.
The Whites have struggled for goals of late and with Richard Cresswell back on the sidelines with a knee injury, Dennis Wise has moved for Kandol.
The 25-year-old former Luton, Bournemouth and Darlington striker has linked up with Leeds on loan until January with a view to a permanent move.
Kandol has revealed it was a wrench to leave Underhill, but hopes the club's fans understand his reasons for switching to The Championship.
"I am very sorry to be leaving but I am sure the fans will appreciate that this is a good career move for me at my age," he told the club's official website.
"It is good for me and it is good for the club - hopefully I will settle there."
Bees chairman Tony Kleanthous was keen to retain Kandol, but felt the deal was in the best interests of the League Two outfit.
"In the end, Tresor felt the opportunity was too good to turn down, and I reluctantly had to agree that it could be in his best interests," he said.
The arrival of Kandol at Elland Road is the second capture of the day following the loan arrival of experienced Middlesbrough stopper Ugo Ehiogu.
