    Brentford have completed the signing of central defender James Tarkowski from Oldham Athletic for an undisclosed fee. The 21-year-old has signed on at Griffin Park until the summer of 2017. As part of the deal, James will return to Oldham on loan when the loan window reopens next Saturday, February 8. Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “James is a very talented young defender who we have monitored for a period of months. He is a good footballing centre half, he is comfortable in possession and has a good physique. We are delighted we have been able to get him to Brentford on a permanent basis. It will give us good choice at centre half and excellent quality in that position. James ticks the box for us in terms of his age and he has lots of development left in him. We think this is a very good piece of business for the Club. James will go back to Oldham for a month when the loan window opens. He will come back to us later in the season and is a big part of our plans for the future.”

    James came through the youth ranks at Oldham and made his debut for The Latics as an 18-year-old scholar in January 2011, against Brentford. He played nine games in the 2010/11 season and turned professional that summer, playing 18 games in 2011/12 and scoring his first Oldham goal. James played 26 games last season and has established himself at first choice at Boundary Park in 2013/14. He has played 26 of Oldham’s 28 Sky Bet League One matches this season and 36 in all competitions, scoring three goals.

    Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke has returned from his loan spell at Aldershot Town. Emmanuel, better known to most as Manny, joined The Shots on a Youth Loan in August in a deal that expired but before Christmas. The loan was extended until Tuesday, January 28, but has now come to an end. Manny has returned to Brentford and will be training with The Bees over the come days. In 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 at Aldershot. “We had good reports both about the way he played and also with the way he conducted himself as a professional. The extension of the loan allowed Manny to play through the busy Christmas period and he got to experience that side of life as a professional footballer. He will come back to us now and we can have a look at how he has developed as a player and a person during his loan. Manny has been in and around the First Team in the past and we hope he can push on again. But we will make a decision about the rest of the season in the coming days and weeks and it may be that another loan spell will be to his benefit.”

    Brentford defender Shaleum Logan has joined SPL side Aberdeen on loan for the rest of the season. The 25-year-old has been restricted to a bit-part role since Alan McCormack established himself as first-choice right-back in October, which has coincided with the club's 17-game unbeaten run. However, Logan has featured more regularly since Mark Warburton took charge before Christmas and has started the past two games. The arrival of versatile Arsenal defender Nico Yennaris increased speculation about his future, with the former Manchester City full-back's contract due to expire at the end of the season. We reported this morning that the Dons were interested in taking Logan on loan, and he has followed Farid El Alagui north of the border. Logan made 104 appearances for the Bees since his arrival in 2011, scoring five goals.[

    Brentford boss Mark Warburton remains hopeful of signing another defender before the transfer window closes on Friday. The Bees have already brought in Alan Judge, Chuba Akpom and Nico Yennaris this month, but the search for a new centre-back has so far proved fruitless. Brentford remain interested in re-signing Wigan's Rob Kiernan, while Oldham Athletic defender James Tarkowski is also on their radar. Captain Kevin O'Connor has filled the void in the absence of the injured Harlee Dean, but Warburton will press ahead with plans to bolster his options ahead of the deadline. He said: "We had no doubts about Kevin. He's had injuries but he's come though. He always works hard in training and he's the ultimate pro."

    Brentford FC needs your help with a final push to help show your support for a new Community Stadium in Lionel Road. Please sign this online petition today and tell Boris that you want a new Brentford Community stadium in Lionel Road.

    You can sign this petition AND write in and we encourage people to do both.

    Why is this important?

    We appreciate the support that everyone has already shown and this has helped us get a positive response form Hounslow Council. However a new stadium is not a done deal. It is currently with the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who has the power to call-in the decision, which will at best delay the project and at worst make it unviable. There remains opposition to the new stadium and they are making their views known to Boris. It is important that we too show Boris the great support that exists for a new stadium.

    It’s simple – if we want a new stadium, we need to tell Boris that. So please do sign the petition.
    All you have to do is fill in your name and address. Please spread the word!

    Nico Yennaris - Brentford have signed England Under-19 international Nico Yennaris from Arsenal for an undisclosed fee. The 20-year-old, who can play in defence and midfield, linked up with The Bees this morning. He signed a two and a half year deal and will be available for Brentford’s Sky Bet League One match against Bristol City at Griffin Park tomorrow, Tuesday January 28. The contract will keep him at Griffin Park until 2016. Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “Nico is a player we have watched for many years as he has come through the Academy at Arsenal. He is a very talented player, technically good and physically sound. He has a real tactical astuteness for a young player. Nico has shown great flexibility in terms of positioning, appearing for Arsenal at right back, left back and in midfield. Nico is in the same age category as George Saville, Jake Bidwell and Marcello Trotta. He is a talented young player and I am sure he will have a bright future at Brentford Football Club. We are delighted to secure him permanently. I thank the senior staff at Arsenal for their help in finalising the deal.”

    Anderson Banvo - Brentford have handed a trial to Blackpool forward Anderson Banvo. The 19-year-old striker has been training with the Bees and played 90 minutes for the development side in this afternoon's 2-1 win against Brighton. Banvo is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Seasiders since his switch from Paris Saint-Germain in 2012.
