The Times Series understands Watford midfielder Ross Jenkins is set to join League Two side Barnet on an initial one-month loan.

The 22-year-old has made more than 80 league appearances for the Hornets but has featured just once this season under Gianfranco Zola.

Jenkins spent a month at Plymouth Argyle earlier in the campaign but made just two appearances for the Pilgrims before returning to Vicarage Road due to injury.

He has not played a competitive game since the beginning of October but will boost the Bees midfield options as John Oster remains absent due to a hamstring injury.
