Grant Basey, a 6ft 2ins tall central defender or left back who has made 46 appearances for Charlton Athletic, signed for Barnet at The Hive today.
Mark Stimson moved to bring in the 21-year-old Wales U21 defender on Sunday. Basey reported to The Hive this morning, signed a four month contract, trained with his new team-mates and was registered with The Football League.
Basey was given squad No 26 and included in the party to visit Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow. He will cover the long term absences of central defenders Darren Dennehy and Daniel Leach.
Basey was with Charlton from the age of eight and signed as a pro in 2007. He was injured in February and missed games until the end of the season when he was released. He trained with Aberdeen pre-season, but decided he wanted to continue his career in England.
Although he was born in England, Basey qualified for Wales because of a grandmother in Cardiff and played for the U17, U19 and U21 sides.
Steve Kabba, who went off with cramp at Morecambe on Saturday, and Ricky Holmes, who got a knock when he crashed into an advertisement hoarding, were rated as 50-50 to play at Wycombe, but both trained today.
Phil Walsh, who missed the trip North because of a family isssue, was also in training.
Footnote: three players made their Football League debuts at Morecambe: Charlie Taylor, Sam Cox and Charlie Stimson.
