Brentford keeper Liam O'Brien has signed a new contract that keeps him at the club for the rest of the campaign.
The former QPR, Portsmouth and Barnet shot-stopper is yet to make a first-team appearance for the Bees since his arrival on a short-term deal in August while Richard Lee recovered from injury.
However, with rookie Jack Bonham staying with non-league Arlesey Town, boss Mark Warburton has decided to hand O'Brien an extension.
He told the club's website: “We are pleased to extend Liam's contract through until the end of the season and this gives him the opportunity to both fully recuperate following his recent surgery and, more importantly, continue to impress the staff with his application and technical ability.
“He will provide important cover to David Button and Richard Lee whilst young Jack Bonham continues his development out on loan at Arlesey Town."
