Development Squad midfielder returns to Griffin Park after loan spell at Aldershot.

Development Squad midfield player Emmanuel Oyeleke has returned from his loan spell at Aldershot Town.
Emmanuel, better known to most as Manny, joined The Shots on a Youth Loan in August in a deal that expired but before Christmas.
The loan was extended until Tuesday, January 28, but has now come to an end.
Manny has returned to Brentford and will be training with The Bees over the come days.
In five months at Aldershot Manny made 33 appearances, playing in both midfield and at right back, and scored four goals.
Ose Aibangee, Brentford Academy Director, said: “Manny did very well at Aldershot.
“We had good reports both about the way he played and also with the way he conducted himself as a professional.
“The extension of the loan allowed Manny to play through the busy Christmas period and he got to experience that side of life as a professional footballer.
“He will come back to us now and we can have a look at how he has developed as a player and a person during his loan.
“Manny has been in and around the First Team in the past and we hope he can push on again.
“But we will make a decision about the rest of the season in the coming days and weeks and it may be that another loan spell will be to his benefit.”
Manny made his Brentford debut in an FA Cup Second Round tie against Wrexham in December 2011 and has made two further appearances for The Bees, in a League One game against Milton Keynes Dons and in a Capital One Cup tie against Dagenham and Redbridge earlier this season.
He also had a spell on loan at Northampton Town last season.
