English League Two club Barnet have completed the signing of midfielder Fuad Sule from Bohemians for an undisclosed fee.
The 20-year-old has signed a contract of unspecified length with the struggling Bees after finally making his dream of cross-channel football into a reality.
The midfielder had been close to sealing a move to Greater London during the summer only to remain at Dalymount Park for the conclusion of the League of Ireland season.
After negotiations between the two clubs, has finalised the deal ahead of the opening of the English transfer window on January 1st.
“I'm very happy to be with this massive club in this massive league,” Sule told the club's official website.
“It's been ongoing for a while now. The interest has been there from the two parties since the summer.
“It's been little things that have been knocking the deal back for a while but I'm very happy to get it over the line and I can't wait to get on the pitch.
“[The year at Bohemians] was my breakthrough season, but it turned out to be a very good season with some huge personal accolades that I achieved.
“Personally it was a good seasons for me and collectively, as a team, it was a good season for everyone associated with the club and I'm going to remember the club with very fond memories.”
The Tallaght native made 24 appearances in the league for Bohs during 2017 – he was a virtual ever-present after impressing on his debut in an EA Sports Cup game against Cabinteely in April.
Sule came through the ranks with Crumlin United and spent time with the underage set-ups at both Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick's Athletic.
He was part of the Pats side that won the under-19 league in 2015 and made his senior debut for the Saints on the final day of 2016 before signing up with Keith Long's Gypsies in the off-season.
