Barnet manager Paul Fairclough is hoping to sign York City striker Andy Bishop.

The 23-year-old is presently The Minstermen's top scorer and his eye for goal could earn him a move to Underhilll if Fairclough pursues his interest in January.

Fairclough has been handed a £100,000 transfer fund and it is understood that Bishop tops his current wanted list.

"We are looking for new players but we won't just spend what money we have got on something for the sake of it. It's got to be what's right for us," he told the Edgware & Mill Hill Times.

Meanwhile, York boss Billy McEwan says that he has not yet had any contact from Barnet but he would not be surprised to receive a call.

"We have not heard anything from Barnet but you don't know what goes on behind the scenes with players and agents," he confirmed to the York Evening Press.

"I expect there's a bit of interest in a few of our players. If other clubs are chasing our players it means we're doing something right."

Meanwhile, City will not be adding Gainsborough Trinity defender Richard Pell to their squad after he turned down the chance of playing football professionally.

"We were interested in the boy because he did well against us and when we watched him three or four times. We made him an offer but he decided he didn't want to pursue it," added McEwan.
