Bournemouth are reportedly lining up a second bid for Brentford defender Chris Mepham, according to the Mirror.

The Cherries had a bid of £5.5m rejected for the centre-back, but are said to have returned with a second offer.

Mepham has made just 11 league appearances for the Bees, eight of those from the start, but he is seen as having a big future in the game.

What time do deals get done on Transfer Deadline Day?

The west Londoners secured the 20-year-old defender's services on a five year contract in September last year after promoting him from the B team squad.

Brentford fans will, no doubt, be hoping that Mepham remains a Bee come 11pm this evening.
