DRU Yearwood has completed a move to Brentford from Southend United in a deal believed to be worth £500,000. 

The 19-year-old midfielder made 61 appearances for the Shrimpers.

But he has now joined the Championship club.

And the Bees head coach Thomas Frank is thrilled to have Yearwood on board. 

 “Dru has the qualities we want in a midfield player at Brentford," Frank told the club's official website.

"He is very good at getting around the pitch and does the work we want in terms of pressing and winning the ball back.

"He is a young player and there will be more to come from him.

"Working with our coaches will help his development and I believe we will see that quickly.

"I want to welcome Dru to Brentford, he will be a great addition to our squad.”
