    Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke has signed on for another loan spell at Aldershot Town. Emmanuel, better known to most as Manny, joined The Shots on a Youth Loan in August and was with the Skrill Premier side until late January. He has now joined the Hampshire side again, this time on loan for the rest of the season. In his first five months at Aldershot Manny made 33 appearances, playing in both midfield and at right back, and scored four goals.

    Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “Manny did very well in his first spell at Aldershot. We had good reports both about the way he played and also with the way he conducted himself as a professional. He played through the busy Christmas period and he got to experience that side of life as a professional footballer. Aldershot were very keen for him to go back and we feel that is best for his development at this stage. Aldershot have a lot to play for in the last month of the season and Manny will play in games with a lot riding on them. This will be good for him and I hope he will thrive in that environment.”

    Brentford midfield player Toumani Diagouraga has been recalled from his loan spell at Sky Bet League Two Portsmouth. The 26-year-old central midfielder has been with Portsmouth since mid-February. The deal included a 24-hour recall clause and Brentford have exercised that option. Toumani will return to train with The Bees tomorrow, Thursday March 27, and will be available for the nine Sky Bet League One games Brentford have remaining this season. Toumani played eight games for Pompey during his time with the League Two side.

    Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “The idea of sending Toumani out on loan was for him to get valuable game time. He would then be match fit for when he was needed by Brentford Football Club. He has got great pitch time at Portsmouth, done an exceptional job for them and we have had great feedback. We now need him back to make sure everything is in place so we can have a successful end to the season. This loan has achieved its aim.”

    Club Captain Kevin O’Connor has signed a new one-year contract to stay at Bees until the summer of 2015. The one-club man, who is closing in on 500 games in a Brentford shirt and is fourth on the Club’s all-time appearance list, signed the new deal at Griffin Park on Thursday March 20. As well as extending his playing contract in to a remarkable 16th season as a Brentford First Team player, Kevin will take on coaching responsibilities.

    Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “I am delighted that Kevin O’Connor will be extending his contract with the Club and indeed will be assuming additional responsibilities as he looks to begin his coaching career. Kevin will continue his playing career but combine his training and playing duties with his pursuit of the relevant coaching licences and spending time working with both the First Team and Academy staff. Kevin has seen so much significant change at the Club and yet has maintained his exceedingly high standards throughout and it is this outstanding quality that we need to keep at Brentford. We will work closely with Kevin on a day-to-day basis and ensure he is given every opportunity to build a solid foundation for the next stage of his career. However, it is important for me to stress that he will remain a valuable member of the playing squad and his immediate focus will be on preparing himself for competition as and when he is selected. “

    Frank McParland, Brentford FC Sporting Director, added: “Kevin buys in to the vision we all have for the future of Brentford Football Club. He will be able to learn from some outstanding coaches as he moves in to that phase of his career but he still had a lot to offer as a player, as he has proved in recent months. It is great that we can keep a Brentford legend at the Club to work with the staff and players who will follow in his footsteps from the youth ranks to the First Team.”

    Brentford midfield player Toumani Diagouraga has extended his loan at League Two Portsmouth for the rest of the 2013/14 season. However, the agreement also includes a clause that Brentford can recall him at 24 hours’ notice if he is required. The 26-year-old central midfielder signed the extension yesterday afternoon and will stay with Pompey for the remainder of the campaign. Toumani was named as Portsmouth captain for their League Two defeat against Fleetwood Town on Saturday, March 15. He has played six games for them so far – they have won one, drawn three and lost two.

    Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “Toumani remains a very important member of the Brentford squad. It is vitally important that we can call on players that are match fit if we need to. We have two high quality players pushing for places in midfield – Toumani and Jake Reeves – and it is imperative they get as much pitch time as possible. They both need to stay fit. Toumani is doing very well at Portsmouth and as and when we need him, we will bring him back.”
