    Defender Aaron Pierre has left Brentford and signed for Wycombe Wanderers. The 21-year-old was offered a new contract by The Bees after three successful years as part of Brentford’s Development Squad. He turned down that deal to join Sky Bet League Two Wycombe, where he spent time on loan at the end of the 2013/14 season. The two clubs have agreed an undisclosed compensation agreement for the left sided defender and Aaron signed for Wycombe today. Ose Aibangee, Brentford FC Academy Director, said: “We would like to wish Aaron all the best for the future. We took him as a raw 18-year-old and have watched him develop over the past three years. He has been given the opportunity to play First Team football immediately and has decided that is right for him. We would have liked to see how he developed if he had stayed at Brentford but I respect his decision. Wycombe is a good club, Aaron did well there on loan and I am sure he will make an impact at League Two level.”

    Brentford boss Mark Warburton is due to speak to the club in the next few weeks in a bid to thrash out his future. The former Watford coach, who arrived as assistant to caretaker manager Nicky Forster back in 2011, led the Bees to promotion after taking over from Uwe Rosler in December. Warburton stepped down from his role as sporting director to take up the hotseat after getting the nod from owner Matthew Benham, but the initial deal was only until the end of the season. The 51-year-old is busy planning for next campaign and is hoping his own future can be sorted out shortly. He said: "I will speak to the club soon. Frank McParland is my boss, so I will let him take care of things. If they are happy for me to carry on then great. It would be nice to get things sorted in time for the start of pre-season, but I believe it's important not to push things. I'm planning for next year as normal."

    Brentford are monitoring Millwall's out of contract striker Simeon Jackson, according to reports. With talks ongoing over a new deal for top scorer Clayton Donaldson, the Bees are in the market for more firepower for next season. Of the other front men who finished the season with the Bees, Marcello Trotta and Alan Judge have returned to Fulham and Blackburn respectively, while Stuart Dallas still only has a handful of games under his belt, and Will Grigg flopped in front of goal last term. Jackson, who The Sun reports has grabbed Brentford's interest, is out of contract at The New Den, having signed a deal until the end of the season when he joined from German side Eintracht Braunschweig in February. The Jamaican born 27 year old has scored more than 100 goals for Rushden & Diamonds, Gillingham, Millwall and Norwich, and played in the Premier League for the Canaries.

    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.
