Midfielder Wes Fonguck says he is “happy to be back” at Barnet after signing a new two-year deal to re-join the club.

Fonguck’s contract expired at the end of last season but put any talks with the club on hold while he weighed up offers from numerous clubs in Scandinavia.

However, the 22-year-old eventually committed his future to the Bees last week and he hopes to push on after missing the opening month of the season.

Speaking to the club website, he said: “I’m just happy to get it done. It’s been a long summer for me personally but I’m happy to be back to help the boys win the league.

“I was quite pleased [that the club got back in contact]. Obviously some things happened but as soon as they told me they wanted me back I came back straight away.

“I’ve been talking to and keeping up with the boys and following them. We’ve only got one loss so far this season which is good because obviously we want to improve, but I’m just happy coming back to help the boys.”

Fonguck performed well for the Bees last season, notching eight goals in 36 games as the club found it difficult to readjust to life back in the National League, but with an improved start from the side this time around, the midfielder hopes to match that improvement.

He said: “[My aims] are always just to do better than last season. To get more goals, more assists and to create more chances.

“I want the supporters to know that I’m going to give my all on the pitch and do what I can for the club, the team, the players and the fans most importantly.”

Promotion for Barnet is certainly the aim this season, as said by head coach Darren Currie and chairman Tony Kleanthous, and it’s something that Fonguck feels the team can achieve.

He said: “I feel like this season we’re more together as a squad and we all believe that we can go up, so I don’t see why that shouldn’t happen.”
