Notts County are on the verge of signing Barnet captain Neal Bishop on a two-year deal.
The 27-year-old had been offered a one-year deal to stay at Underhill but is expected to put pen-to-paper for the Magpies this week.
The midfielder is the second signing for the club this week, following on from fellow midfielder Ricky Ravenhill's arrival from Darlington.
Manager Ian McParland revealed that he had been keeping tabs on Bishop for the majority of last season and added that the two new-boys would complement each other well at Meadow Lane.
"It has been an excellent couple of days and the message is that despite all the disappointments of last season, good players still want to come and join us," he told the club's official website.
"I couldn't be more pleased. One of the priorities this summer was to get more leaders on board and we have already added two more in Ravenhill and Bishop.
"(Assistant manager) Dave Kevan and I trailed Neal for much of last season and we think he has a real presence about him.
"We are sure he can make a big contribution and believe he will blend well with Ricky Ravenhill.
"He's a six footer who wins headers in both boxes, is a good tackler and makes easy passes. If we need him to go forward he can and he is just as adept in the holding role."
