BRENTFORD will unveil their fifth summer signing on Monday, the Chronicle can reveal.
The Bees have so far brought in Alan McCormack, Jack Bonham, George Saville and captured Jake Bidwell on a permanent basis.
However, boss Uwe Rosler is still in the market for a centre-back, winger and forward.
Brentford have been linked with moves for Swindon defender Darren Ward and Walsall striker Will Grigg.
And Rosler has revealed the club are on the verge of adding another new recruit to the Griffin Park ranks.
He said: “In certain positions towards the end of last season we were very thin, for example at centre-half.
“We need to bring in an experienced defender who can compete with Tony [Craig] and Harlee Dean.
“We need to look in the wide areas as well and also up front.
“We will be in a position to announce a new signing on July 1.”
