GREG Dyke will leave his role at Brentford at the end of the season to become the new Football Association chairman.
The 65-year-old has been Bees chairman for more than seven years, but will step down in the summer to succeed David Bernstein after being given the nod by the FA board.
Dyke said: "Obviously as chairman of the FA, it is imperative that I am neutral so that means giving up my current role as chairman of Brentford, which I will miss. However I shall be staying on until the end of the season.
"As I leave, I would like to pay tribute to everyone at Brentford, the staff, the players and manager and particularly the fans. I hope their loyalty is rewarded with promotion, it deserves to be.”
