Barnet players Andy Yiadom and Mauro Vilhete have been made available for transfer.

Bees manager Martin Allen has provided an update for supporters regarding the decision, saying:

“This morning we have made Andy Yiadom and Mauro Vilhete available for transfer.

“We have offered Andy a new contract which he has rejected.

“As he is out of contract this summer, we felt that it was best to make Andy available now.

“He has been inspirational and has not only been an excellent player, but is a great person.

“He has a good character, an excellent work ethic, and a desire to better himself.

“He will be sadly missed, but we have to evolve and move on.

“With Mauro it is a very difficult decision, as once again he played a significant part in our championship winning team.

“The step up has seen us, in my opinion, doing ok.

“But I want to step up again, and opportunities for Mauro would be limited.

“I am now committed to developing and bringing through the next group of young players.

“Their pathway must be clear for the next 18 months to secure their places in the first team squad.

“Mauro is a lovely person – honest, hardworking, and very professional.

“Again it is a tough decision and a difficult one for me personally.

“A few things are happening at the moment behind the scenes, and I will update you all as soon as the deals get done.”
