New striker Izale McLeod cannot wait to put on a Barnet shirt.

The 25-year-old, who signed for the Bees today, is nearing the end of a rehabilitation programme for a knee injury.

McLeod netted goals for fun for former club MK Dons, earning a £1.5million move to Charlton Athletic.

But he was released by the Addicks in the summer and has not played at all this season due to his injury problems.

But now he is raring to go.

He told his new club: "I am really looking forward to putting on a Barnet shirt, getting back to my best, playing football and scoring goals."
