Brentford added just two new signings in the January transfer window, bringing in Nathan Fox on a free from Cray Wanderers, as well as West Ham United’s Emmanuel Onariase.
The Bees have seen five players head for the exits at Griffin Park though, with James Tarkowski and Toumani Diagouraga both joining Championship rivals, while Montell Moore, Ryan Williams and Josh Laurent have all been released.
Brentford made it into the play-offs last season, but are off the pace this term, with their 40 points leaving them 11th in the standings – eight points outside the top six.
Having changed manager twice since the end of last season, Brentford fans may have been surprised not to see Dean Smith adding to his squad towards the end of the window, particularly with so many players moving away.
