Saints complete deal for Barnard
The 25-year-old, who has signed at St Mary's, is available for this weekend's FA Cup fourth-round clash against Ipswich. The former Tottenham striker scored 20 goals during his first season with Southend last year and has already found the net 17 times in the current campaign which had alerted the attention of Leeds. But Saints academy graduate Matthew Paterson has left the club to sign a permanent deal with the Shrimpers.
