It would appear that the relationship between Uwe Rosler and Brentford FC is set to deteriorate a tad following news that the former Bees boss is trying to lure Adam Forshaw with the new season looming into view.

Rosler, who has been sniffing around trying to nab George Saville ahead of the Bees, now seemingly has his eyes set on the League One Player of the Season to bolster his side after failing to win promotion through the Championship play-offs last campaign. However, he has been knocked back at the first attempt with a reported £1.5m offer rejected by Brentford.

Brentford fans are not naive enough to think that Forshaw doesn’t have his price. All players do. But I get the impression that it’ll take a significant, club-record-smashing bid before Mathew Benham and his team would risk losing such a prized asset so close to one of the most important seasons in the club’s history.

Uwe also knows that a sizeable chunk of any transfer would have to be shared with Everton, which was part of the agreement that brought him to Griffin Park.

Forshaw seemed a settled player at Griffin Park, and although injuries at the end of last season and a close season operation have curtailed pre season game time, it is hoped the player won’t be distracted too much and is focussed on continuing his journey with The Bees. Watch this space.

Forshaw spoke to Beesotted during the Barnet friendly (click for video) .. Saying he will be back for the first game of the season. Starting for who though?

Will Forshaw go to Wigan for bucket loads of cash … And in return, Rosler abandons his chase for Saville (which apparently was close to being a done deal), who then signs permanently for the Bees ….???
