Spiegel joins Barnet on loan

Young West Ham United goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel has joined Vanarama Conference leaders Barnet on a month-long loan deal.

The 21-year-old stopper will get his first taste of senior football in England during his time with the Bees, who are currently six points clear at the top of their division.

Spiegel has made eight appearances for the Hammers' U21 side this season and was briefly on loan with Sky Bet League One side Crawley Town at the start of the campaign.

He arrived at the Boleyn Ground in 2012 from Swiss club Grasshopper and has represented Switzerland up to U21 level.

Spiegel made his Bees debut in a 2-1 defeat Bristol Rovers on Tuesday evening, with home matches against Macclesfield Town and Chester, and an away fixture at Torquay United to follow during his loan spell.
