Barnet target Arsenal, Spurs loan signings

Barnet boss Paul Fairclough admits he hopes to lean on neighbours Arsenal and Tottenham over loan signings this summer.

Fairclough told arsenal.com: "Well Arsene did say to me, when we were in the Conference, that if we ever reached the Football League that he would loan us a player.

"That hasn't happened yet, although we have asked. So I think that by demonstrating that we want to do things the right way, maintaining the quality of the pitch, playing the right style of football, and hopefully demonstrating that on the weekend then Arsene might reconsider and send some of the young players.

"I have studied them and I think there are several players at Arsenal who would really, really benefit from a spell with Barnet. Tottenham are very anxious for us to take some players and we took a young lad from Charlton last season. We would welcome it from Arsenal, of course we would."
