Billy Grant goes single Dutch – revealing the player Beesotted pinpointed Brentford were signing from Dutch Champions PSV Eindhoven a few weeks back

As Beesotted exclusively revealed la couple of weeks ago , Brentford have returned to Europe and as of Thursday morning – after his passing his medical on Wednesday evening – are very close to completing a deal to sign Florian Jozefzoom from Dutch Eridivise Champions PSV Eindhoven.

The 25 year old French Guianese winger – who flew in for a medical today (Wednesday) – made his debut for Ajax in 2010 and spent some time at NAC Breda and RKC Waalwijk before signing for PSV in 2013.

The player – who can play right and left wing although he prefers to play on the right – suffered from a serious cruciate knee injury a year ago, similar to the Hogan injury, which had him out of the PSV side for over 12 months.

As discussed in the Beesotted Pride of West London podcast below, up until then, he was an ever-present in the PSV team in their 2014/15 Championship Season – making 20 appearances in the League and Europa league, before being sidelined.

Since his return, Jozefzoom has yo-yod between the first team and PSV’s reserves – Jong PSV – with nine appearances towards the back-end of PSV’s 2015/16 Championship season.

He’s a player with place, as can be seen from his showreel below. Something that Brentford have been looking for to add a new dimension to the team.

Whether this will change Brentford’s view on signing Sergi Canos, we will see. Our sources say that Brentford are very much still in for the Spanish player. Beesotted’s view is – as the club is looking to add pace to the side, the addition of a player of the calibre of Jozefzooon AND Sergi Canos can only benefit us and add some much needed strength-in-depth to the Brentford squad. Also Canos can play all across the middle which is a bonus.

Brentford fans will be majorly comforted by the fact that Jozefzoon is already completely comfortable wearing red and white stripes.

Brentford have until noon Friday to get clearance for him to play Chelsea.

*** THUR 7am UPDATE – Jozefzoon has passed his medical test so signing is expected to be confirmed at some one on Thursday
