On the mend: Harlee Dean has gone under the knife

Brentford defender Harlee Dean has had an operation to fix a niggling abdominal injury.

The centre-back has been restricted to 33 appearances this term due to a combination of stomach pains and a broken foot.

However, with promotion to the Championship now secured, Dean went under the knife this morning in a bid to finally clear up the problem which has hampered him since November.

He said: “I am going to work hard this summer because I haven’t played as many games or as well as I would have liked, so I’m going to come back even better next time."
