Liverpool Trio Join Barnet

Barnet have completed the signing of Liverpool trio Herbie Kane, George Johnston and Jaunma on season-long-loans.
Barnet manager stated earlier this week that his side needed to be 'active' in the transfer window if they wanted to 'avoid relegation this season' and that work would begin 'immediately' as they look to do so. The trio mark his first signings since his return to the club, after he rejoined the Bees for a sixth time earlier this month.
They have all yet to make their first team debuts with the Reds, however there has been much promise around the players. Kane, 18, has been labelled the next Steven Gerrard after he joined the club from his hometown club Bristol City at just 14. He has been a regular starter in the U23's over the course of the past year and has also been training with the senior squad previous to his arrival at The Hive.
Scottish defender George Johnston joined Liverpool in 2015 and has gone on to be a Scottish youth international, as he also is a familiar face in the Under 23's alongside Kane. Capable of playing in both center-back and left-back, the 19-year-old's versatility will benefit Barnet this season.
Spaniard Juanma Garcia, born in Alicante, joined Liverpool from the famous Barcalona youth academy last season. Beginning his career with Elche, Barcelona snapped the right-back up at just age 11 in 2009. Since, he has gone on to represent Spain at U15, 16, 17, and U19 level and has been touted to be a future star at Anfield.
