    Dagenham & Redbridge have made an enquiry about taking Brentford defender Scott Barron on loan. The former Millwall full-back hasn't featured since the Johnstone's Paint Trophy win against AFC Wimbledon in September due to a niggling hip problem, but Barron is fit again having made his comeback playing for the reserves. League Two Daggers, who already have Bees striker Luke Norris on their books, are keen to bring the 28-year-old to Victoria Road for the rest of the season.

    Meanwhile, Brentford are still willing to listen to offers for Viktoria Plzen winger Martin Fillo, despite his hat-trick for the under-21s against Charlton last week. The emergence of youngster Charlie Adams has forced the 28-year-old, who has not played for the Bees since October, even further down the Griffin Park pecking order. Fillo is on a season-long loan from Plzen, but is permitted to move elsewhere in England before next week's deadline.

    Brentford have recalled Charlie Adams from his loan spell at Barnet. The 19-year-old made five appearances for the Conference outfit and was due to remain at the Hive for the rest of the season. However, with a gruelling set for fixtures over the next month, boss Mark Warburton has decided to activate the 28-day recall clause in the deal. Adams is yet to play for Brentford's first team this campaign but has featured on the bench.

    Chelmsford City manager Mark Hawkes has revealed teenage wingers Joe Ward and Aaron Greene have both been training with Brentford. Ward and Greene have both made a good impression since Hawkes took over in November, and he has spoken before in particular about Ward having the ability and mental aptitude to make it in the professional game. Neither played in Saturday’s 2-0 defeat to Sutton, with Greene an unused sub and Ward left out completely.

    Development Squad defender Aaron Pierre has joined Sky Bet League Two Wycombe Wanderers on loan. The left sided player, who turned 21 earlier this month, has been at Brentford since the summer of 2011 and signed a new one-year contract in the summer of 2013. He linked up with Wycombe this morning and has agreed to stay with the Buckinghamshire side until Sunday March 30. Aaron played 19 games from Brentford’s Development Squad in the Under-21 Professional Development League last season and also made his First Team debut in a Johnstone’s Paint Trophy tie against Southend United. He was an unused substitute in four further First Team games. He has made two further First Team appearances as a substitute this season, in a Capital One Cup tie against Derby County and a JPT game against Dagenham and Redbridge, and played in all 12 games for Brentford’s Development Squad in the Under-21 Professional Development League.

    Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “This is an important move for Aaron. He has an opportunity to go to a Football League club and be involved with a First Team squad, preparing for matches. Wycombe are fighting to avoid relegation, the stakes could not be higher for them and that is the sort of challenge a player should relish. Aaron will have to fight for his place and prove he is good enough to play at that level. Wycombe are a good club that will look after Aaron and give him a chance to succeed. This loan will be great for his development and we will see how he goes over the next few weeks.”

    Development Squad striker Luke Norris has extended his loan spell at Sky Bet League Two Dagenham and Redbridge. The 20-year-old joined the East London side last month and has played six games for The Daggers, scoring twice. He will now stay with Dagenham and Redbridge until Sunday March 23. It is Luke’s second loan move of the season as he spent just under two months with Northampton Town, scoring five goals in 12 games in all competitions, all of which came in his first six games.

    Ose Aibangee, Brentford FC Academy Director, said: “Luke is doing well at Dagenham and continuing to prove he can score goals at Football League level. He now has seven in 18 games for League Two teams this season, which is a good record. It is important for him to play First Team football at Football League level and he is getting that opportunity at Dagenham and Redbridge. He also has to fight for his place and that sort of competition can only do him good. We were pleased Dagenham and Redbridge wanted to keep him for another month and are happy for him to stay. We will, as ever, watch him during this month, which is a busy one for all clubs, and see how he develops.”
