Done Deal: Brentford seal move for 11-goal forward



Brentford have confirmed the arrival of forward Chiedozie Ogbene from Limerick FC via their official Twitter feed.

The 20-year-old has netted 11 goals in 45 appearances this season and with the Bees set to lose Lasse Vibe to Chinese football, they have swooped to add younger goalscoring blood to their ranks.

Ogbene began his career with Cork City where he made his professional debut aged 18 in a 1-0 win over Bohemians on the final day of the 2015 league season.

He also featured twice off the bench, including an appearance in the Final, as Cork won the FAI Cup in 2016 as well as playing in all four of City’s UEFA Youth League matches.

The 2017 season was his breakthrough campaign following his January move to Limerick. He played every minute of their run to the FAI Cup semi-final.

He has passed a medical having been on trial with The Bees this month and has signed a three-and-a-half-year deal after an undisclosed fee was agreed.

The Verdict

He looks like a hot prospect, the kind of hidden gem Brentford have made their reputation developing, but it remains to be seen how heavily he features this season.
