    Brentford are having a look at Forest Green Rovers defender Eddie Oshodi. The 21-year-old came through the ranks at Watford before moving to the New Lawn in 2011, where he has racked up 85 appearances for the Conference club. With Ben Nugent returning to Cardiff City this week, Bees boss Mark Warburton is short of cover at the back and is casting an eye over Oshodi in training this week. The Griffin Park chief knows the England C international from their time working together at Vicarage Road. Oshodi played in the same youth team as the likes of Lee Hodson and Piero Mingoia, who both spent spells in TW8 on loan. The centre-back made two senior appearances for the Hornets and also gained experience at Dagenham and Rushden.

    Brentford have completed the loan signing of Blackburn Rovers midfielder Alan Judge and the paperwork has gone through this morning. Boss Mark Warburton is understood to have beaten League One rivals Sheffield United to the 25-year-old’s signature. "He is a good Championship player and is a positive addition to our squad," Bees manager Warburton told the club's official website. "Alan offers us options, both wide and centrally, and has a good character. Alan was an outstanding performer at Notts County last year and thoroughly deserved his move to Blackburn, where he has continued to show excellent form. I am sure he will add real value to the first team squad in the weeks ahead." Judge began his career at Blackburn and made his first-team debut in August 2008. He will remain at Griffin Park for the remainder of the campaign.

    Brentford are set to sign Blackburn Rovers midfielder Alan Judge on loan for the rest of the season. The Chronicle revealed last week that the Bees were battling it out with League One rivals Sheffield United for the out-of-favour Irishman, who has started just seven games this term.

    Marcello Trotta will stay with Brentford for the rest of the 2013/14 season after their loan deals were extended. Agreement has been reached for him to stay with The Bees until May 4, plus the League One Play-Offs if required, and the paperwork was completed this morning. Marcello, 21, has made 20 Brentford appearances this season, 16 of which have been starts, and scored seven goals. He has played 17 League One games for The Bees this season, 13 of them from the start, and scored six goals. Marcello is in his second spell at Griffin Park, having spent six months with The Bees last season. He played a key role in Brentford’s push for automatic promotion in 2012/13, scoring six goals in 22 League One appearances, six of which were as a substitute. In total he scored nine goals in 29 games for The Bees last season and ended the campaign as third top scorer.

    Marcello has now played 49 games for Brentford, 35 from the start and scored 16 goals. In league football that record is 12 goals in 39 games, 29 of which have been starts. Marcello, who is part of the Italy Under-21 set-up, joined Fulham as a 16-year-old in 2009 having been on the books of Napoli and Manchester City as a youngster. He turned professional in the summer of 2011 and joined Wycombe Wanderers on loan later that year. He scored eight goals in eight games for The Chairboys and earned a Fulham debut after returning to Craven Cottage. Marcello, who has also been on loan at Watford and played for Italy at Under-19 level, has made three substitute appearances for Fulham.

    Marcello Trotta - Brentford are set to extend the loan spell of the Fulham striker until the end of the season. The 21-year-old has scored seven goals in 20 games for the Bees, but his initial deal expired over the weekend. A number of clubs have expressed an interest in signing Trotta, with sides from Italy's Serie B joining the battle for his signature. However, the young frontman is poised to remain at Griffin Park to help the League One side's promotion push.

    George Saville - Brentford have extended the loan of Chelsea midfielder George Saville for the rest of the season. The Blues youngster has impressed in the first half of the season, scoring three goals in 22 games for the Bees, but his initial spell came to an end over the weekend. However, Chelsea have agreed to let Saville continue his development with the League One leaders.

    Ben Nugent - Has returned to Cardiff City following the completion of his loan spell at Brentford. The defender made just five appearances during his five-month stay at Griffin Park, scoring twice. Nugent found first-team opportunities in west London limited, struggling to break up the solid centre-back partnership of Harlee Dean and Tony Craig. The 20-year-old hasn't featured since the FA Cup win against Staines almost two months ago, and is now back with the Welsh club after his loan expired over the weekend.

    Aaron Pierre - Has returned to Griffin Park following the completion of his loan spell at Cambridge United. The 20-year-old joined The Us on a month long loan at the start of December and scored an injury time winner on his debut in the FA Trophy against St Albans City. However a mixture of injury and ineligibility meant he was limited to just one appearance during his time at The R Costings Abbey Stadium.

    Alfie Mawson - Luton Town boss John Still will explore the possibility of keeping Mawson after his loan ran out. Mawson has only played 45 minutes due to an injury suffered against Alfreton Town.

    Fleetwood Town are interested in signing Brentford striker Farid El Alagui on loan. The former Falkirk frontman has started just once in the league this season, but has managed six goals in 18 games overall. League Two outfit Fleetwood are keeping tabs on his situation with view to making a move later this month. Brentford are set to complete the signing of Arsenal youngster Chuba Akpom in the next few days, as exclusively revealed by the Chronicle, which could force El Alagui even further down the Griffin Park pecking order. The 28-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season and has yet to be offered fresh terms in west London.

    Brentford are set to complete the loan signing of Blackburn Rovers midfielder Alan Judge after the weekend. The Chronicle revealed last Saturday that the Bees were battling it out with League One rivals Sheffield United for the out-of-favour Irishman, who has started just seven games this season. With Brentford not in action, Judge is expected to be in Blackburn's squad for tomorrow's FA Cup clash against Manchester City. However, the 25-year-old will be allowed to hook up with Mark Warburton's men early next week, providing Rovers don't suffer any more injuries.
