Midfield player commits to Brentford

Brentford midfield player Adam Forshaw has committed his future to the Club by signing a new three-year contract.

The 21-year-old signed a new deal today to keep him at Griffin Park until the end of the 2015/16 season.

Adam joined Brentford from Everton in the summer of 2012, completing a permanent move to Griffin Park at the end of a successful Youth Loan.

Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Sporting Director, said: “The signature of Adam is another signal of the long term commitment being demonstrated by both the club and the individual players.

“We are delighted that Adam recognises the potential at the club for the coming seasons and following discussions with the owner [Matthew Benham], Manager [Uwe Rösler] and myself, he has moved to commit his foreseeable future to Brentford.

“Likewise, it is important that the club recognises and rewards the consistent level of performance displayed by Adam over the last 12/18 months and the offer of an extended contract gives him the peace of mind to focus solely on his continued development as a player.

“We are absolutely delighted by this decision from Adam and look forward to watching his performances in the weeks and months ahead.”

Adam initially signed for The Bees for one month in February 2012 but that was subsequently extended until the end of the 2011/12 season and the move was made permanent last summer.

He cemented a regular place in Brentford’s midfield during the 2012/13 season, playing 53 games in all competitions and 43 of The Bees’ 46 League One matches.

He scored three goals last term and fired home the winning spot kick in Brentford’s Play-Off Semi-Final penalty shoot-out win over Swindon Town.

Adam is the third of Brentford’s young players to sign up for the next three years – Jake Bidwell signed a three-year contract when he joined The Bees from Everton earlier this month and Simon Moore signed up until the summer of 2016 last season.

Adam spoke to Bees Player after completing the paperwork earlier today – subscribers will see an interview with the midfield player shortly.

Sporting Director Mark Warburton and Manager Uwe Rösler also spoke at length to Bees Player about the summer transfer activity – those interviews will be available soon.
