Ben Mee set to join Brentford on free transfer as Thomas Frank continues busy summer

Mee left Burnley when his contract expired following Burnley’s relegation from the Premier League at the end of last season, having spent over a decade at the club.

The centre-back made 376 appearances for the Clarets and after having his season cut short by injury, finished his career at Burnley working in caretaker boss Mike Jackson’s coaching staff after Sean Dyche was sacked at the middle of the countryside.

Brentford already have four senior centre-backs on their books but Thomas Frank regularly employs a back three and, with injury concerns over Ethan Pinnock and Kristoffer Ajer, are keen to bolster their options.

Mee will become the Bees’ fourth major signing this summer following the arrival of Aaron Hickey and Keane Lewis-Potter in successive club-record moves before former Lazio goalkeeper Thomas Strakosha was brought in for free.
