Burly centre-back Ricardo Santos joined Barnet from Peterborough United for £100,000 on New Year’s Eve 2016.
Born in Almada, Portugal, the 6ft 6in stopper arrived at The Hive London with more the 70 appearances in League One to his name.
Originally with Dagenham & Redbridge, Ricardo dropped into non-league football in 2013 when he joined Dover Athletic. But he was quickly snapped up by ex-Bees boss Mark Stimson at Thurrock.
So impressive was Ricardo’s form for the Isthmian Premier Division side, he was snapped up by League One Posh on a three-year deal.
He can also play at right-back but debuted at centre-half in a 1-0 win over League Two leaders Plymouth Argyle on January 2.
