Highly-rated Spanish midfielder Sergi Canos has extended his loan with Sky Bet Championship outfit Brentford, after he caught the eye on his home debut against Preston, the club have confirmed.
The 18-year-old joined Brentford on loan from Premier League Liverpool at the end of the summer transfer window and immediately caught the eye after changing the game when Brentford were 1-0 down at Griffin Park.
Since joining the Bees on loan Canos has made a total of 15 appearances, where 11 of those consisted of substitute appearances, and scored two goals coming in wins over Nottingham Forest and Huddersfield Town.
Brentford manager Dean Smith has been impressed with the 18-year-old since joining the club at the end of November and was keen to extend Canos’ loan as well as John Swift’,s and the two clubs have been able to come to an suitable agreement ahead of the January transfer window opening.
Dean Smith said the Bees’ official site:
“I have been really pleased with Sergi and he has been progressing really well. Even though he is only 18-years-old, he has quite an old head on young shoulders.
“He has impressed me so far. He wants to learn and he wants to get better. He is enjoying himself here and he gives us something that we haven’t really got here in terms of his direct running and enthusiasm. It is encouraging to have a player like Sergi here for the rest of the season.
Brentford appointed Dean Smith at the end of November following the sacking of Marinus Dijkhuizen after nine matches in charge.
Since taking over Brentford have managed two victories, two draws and one defeat leaving the club in ninth position of the Sky Bet Championship, and are four points off the final play off place.
