James Pearson has played five games since joining Barnet in February

Barnet defender James Pearson has signed a contract to keep him with the club until the end of next season.

He has played five times since joining Barnet on a non-contract basis.

Pearson, 23, is the son of ex-Leicester City boss Nigel Pearson and was sacked by the East Midlands club in June 2015 after he took part in a racist sex tape filmed on a tour of Thailand.

The defender was one of three players released by Leicester after an internal investigation into the incident.
