MOSES Barnett has returned to the Welsh Premier League after becoming the sixth new signing this month for Cefn Druids.

The 24-year-old left-back was born in Sierra Leonne but is qualified to play for England and has represented the country at both Under-16 and Under-17 levels. 

A youth teamer with Arsenal, he joined Everton in 2007, spending time on-loan at Darlington in season 2009/10. 

Released by the Toffees he signed for Aberystwyth Town in August 2011 and made seven appearances in the WPL before leaving in November 2011 to join Burscough for the rest of the season.

Moses then moved to Caernarfon Town in the Huws Gray Alliance and has been an integral part of the team’s success during the past two and a half seasons. 

Having made the decision to release Moses, Cofis' manager Lee Dixon was quick to acknowledge the part he has played in the team’s successes.  

"Moses has been a fantastic player during the past three seasons and one of the nicest lads you will come across in football," Dixon says.

"Obviously I am disappointed to lose Moses but he fully understands that we have to keep to our operating budget which has been set by the Board. 

"Moses has been very unfortunate this season not to play as many games as he would have liked but there has been stiff competition for places on the left hand side with Nathan Craig and Chris Williams."

Druids' manager John Keegan has already signed defender Joe Culshaw, central midfielder Nik Giannotta, strikers Neil Harvey and Phil Marsh and goalkeeper Chris Sanna this month,
