The third last ditch deal by the Latics brought in the capture of Southampton striker Lee Barnard who moves to Boundary Park until the end of the season.
Barnard made his debut at Walsall and put his new team in the driving seat with the opening goal but the Saddlers fought back to win 3-1.
Barnard started his career with six seasons at Tottenham Hotspur but when he moved to Southend United his goalscoring career really took off which earned a big-money move to the Saints in 2010. Since that move made 40 starts and 28 substitute appearances for while scoring 24 goals.
