Brentford FC have confirmed that midfielder Nico Yennaris has signed a new long term deal, the club’s official website is reporting.

Nico Yennaris was one of the best performers for Brentford last season and his impressive displays have seen him rewarded with a bumper contract extension.

Yennaris did have another two years on his contract with Brentford which would have seen him stay until the end of the 2018/19 season but he has added another two years to that deal.

The 24-year-oldĀ has put pen to paper on a four year contract extension which sees him commit his future to the West London based outfit until the summer of 2021.

The former England under-19 international, who is also eligible to represent China and Cyprus at international level, joined Brentford in January 2014 after leaving Arsenal.

Yennaris had played a total of four games for his boyhood club Arsenal before departing to pursue his footballing career elsewhere.

After a slow start at Griffin Park, where his progress was halted by injury, he has finally established himself as a regular in the side and is now a long-serving player for the Bees.

Yennaris played in every single Brentford game last season in all competitions, scoring six goals along the way.

Also able to play as a right back, Nico Yennaris has played just shy of 100 games for Brentford in all competitions since his arrival three and half years ago.
