Mee Joins Brentford

“I am very happy that we have signed Ben. He will add a lot of quality and experience to the squad.
“He had six good years for Burnley in the Premier League. I really love his defensive mindset. Also, he knows how to defend the box, he knows how to block a shot and he knows to win duels.
“He will bring leadership and communication to the team, which is very attractive. He has a very good left foot and will be very good for us on set-pieces in both boxes.
I am looking forward to adding him to the squad.”
Frank would be happy with the new signing and the four other signings he has previously made in the transfer window. Frank understands it will be difficult to match the level of the rival teams in the top flight this season.
However, he will hope that with the new signings, the squad will be able to give some competition.
