    Wycombe Wanderers are plotting a move for Brentford youngster Aaron Pierre. The powerful centre-half ended the season at Wycombe as he helped the Chairboys secure League Two safety with a final-day victory over Torquay United. He made eight appearances and netted once in a productive loan stint in Buckinghamshire under manager Gareth Ainsworth. Pierre’s exploits have not gone unnoticed by his parent club and Bees have offered the 21-year-old a new contract. Brentford would be entitled to compensation if Pierre decides to accept an offer from Wycombe as he is under the age of 24.

    Ainsworth said: “I’ve always kept my contract talks private and I’ll keep doing that with my targets. Obviously, Aaron impressed while he was here on loan but he’s at Brentford and they’re a Championship club. We’ll see if anything can be done.

    Brentford have released four players following promotion to the Championship. Striker Farid El Alagui and defender Shaleum Logan - who both ended the season on loan in the SPL - as well as defender Scott Barron and back-up keeper Liam O'Brien have all been shown the door with their contracts up next month. El Alagui scored nine goals in 30 games during his two-year spell in west London following his switch from Falkirk. The Moroccan marksman suffered a serious knee injury during his first season at Griffin Park, and despite three goals in as many games at the beginning of this campaign, he was allowed to see out the final five months back in Scotland with Dundee United. Logan made more than 100 appearances during his three-year stay in TW8. The former Manchester City full-back fell out of favour midway through the season and joined Aberdeen for the remainder of the campaign, where he won the Scottish League Cup. Barron struggled badly with injuries during his time at Brentford following a move across the capital from Millwall. A persistent hip problem restricted the left-back to 22 games for the Bees, while O'Brien failed to make a first-team appearance after being signed as cover in August.

    Brentford have made an improved contract offer to star striker Clayton Donaldson. The former Crewe frontman has smashed 53 goals in 155 games since his switch from Gresty Road in 2011. However, Donaldson, who netted 18 times as the Bees secured promotion to the Championship this season, will be able to leave for nothing when his current deal expires next month. The 30-year-old is keen to remain at Griffin Park next campaign and the club re-opened talks over a new contract last month and the Bradford-born hitman, who is away on the squad's end-of-year promotion party in Las Vegas, has now been offered fresh terms that would keep him in west London for at least another 12 months. Donaldson attracted the interest of Wolves and Millwall last summer, while the Bees also rejected a cheeky £250k bid from Turkish side Trabzonspor in 2013.

    Brentford are considering a double swoop for out-of-contract duo Andy Keogh and Chris Basham. Boss Mark Warburton has promised to give the existing players a chance in the Championship but is expected to make tweaks to the squad in the close season. Keogh and Basham ended this campaign in the division at Blackpool and have the experience the Brentford manager is looking for in his recruitment drive. The duo are likely to become available in the next few weeks and Bees are set to swoop, according to Sky Sports. Irish striker Keogh was on loan at the Tangerines from Millwall, while defender Basham has been with the seaside club since 2010.

    Brentford have offered contract extensions to three more members of the club's Development Squad. The club have confirmed Joe Maloney, Tyrell Miller-Rodney and Kieran Morris have also been tabled 12-month extensions that would keep them in TW8 for the forthcoming campaign. However, the Bees have shown the door to Jack Uttridge, who has been out injured for most of the campaign. Brentford academy director Ose Aibangee told the club's website: “The policy now is to only offer contracts to players that we believe could play for Brentford in the Championship. We are not signing players to fulfil our development squad fixtures; we will give younger players a chance in those games if we need to. That means that over the next few years some players who may well be good enough to play in the Football League will be leaving us. I would like to wish Jack all the best for the rest of his career. Just because there is not an opportunity at Brentford at this time does not mean there is no future in professional football.”

    George Saville admits he would be happy to return to Brentford next season now they are in the Championship. The on-loan Chelsea youngster has been a huge hit at Griffin Park this season, scoring three goals in 40 appearances and putting in a string of stunning performances. Fans feared Saville, who attracted interest from former Bees boss Uwe Rosler at Wigan during the January transfer window, would be courted by clubs higher up the pecking order, but with the Bees having been promoted, a trip back down the A4 could hold a lot more sway for the talented midfielder. He said: “I’d be more than happy to come back, especially as Brentford are now a Championship club, but that would be for the clubs to decide. It’s been a great season for me and it has worked out really well for both parties. I have really enjoyed my time here and helping Brentford get promoted has made it really special. I’m not sure what my future is at Chelsea. I have personal ambitions and goals, but Brentford are a great passing side who suit my game, and I would happily play here again.”

    With the regular Football League season now over two more Brentford’s young on loan players have returned to Griffin Park. Luke Norris has been on loan at Sky Bet League Two Dagenham and Redbridge while Aaron Pierre has been playing in the same division for Wycombe Wanderers. Luke played 19 games for the East London side and scored four goals. He added that to five goals in 12 games on loan at Northampton Town earlier in the season and one goal for Brentford at the start of the campaign. Aaron played eight games for Wycombe and scored once. He helped them pull off a miraculous escape from relegation to non-league football with a last-day win at Torquay United.

    Ose Aibangee, Brentford FC Academy Director, said: “This was a great chance for Aaron and Luke to go out and play in the Football League. It is one they took with both hands. Luke has now proved he can score goals at League Two level, and contribute in other ways, while Aaron played in games that he will remember for ever. He played a big part in helping Wycombe escape relegation and that will stand him in good stead in the coming years. We had excellent reports on those loan moves, both from the clubs and the players and, more importantly, Luke and Aaron have been a credit to Brentford Football Club in the way they have conducted themselves on and off the pitch. They have had a chance experience life outside Brentford and learn a bit more about being a footballer. This will help their development and their future career. We are happy with how these loans have gone.”
