BRENTFORD are confident they will follow the capture of Jack Bonham with the permanent signing of Jake Bidwell in the very near future.
The Bees today brought in keeper Bonham from Watford, and attention will now turn back to bringing in former loanee Bidwell on a permanent transfer from Everton.
The former England youth international has had two successful loan spells already and is keen to follow Adam Forshaw in making the move from Goodison Park to Griffin Park full time.
Bees sporting director Mark Warburton said: “We are very close to that, very close indeed, although I won't put a day on it in case it doesn't turn out that way.
“Jake played his 75 th game for us at Wembley, and he has been a tremendous credit both to ourselves and Everton.”
