Brentford have appointed Monique Choudhuri to the board of directors, with the EFL approving the move.

She said: “I am thrilled to be joining the Board, and continuing my relationship with Brentford Football Club.

“I look forward to assisting them strategically in developing an exemplary Club culture, fostering strong leadership and building great talent.”
