Brentford striker Herson Rodrigues Alves has signed a new contract that will keep him with the Bees until 2016.

Academy graduate Herson was in the side that won the Junior Milk Cup in 2012.

The 18-year-old spent his early teens with Portuguese league leaders Benfica, and can not feature for Brentford until he receives international clearance.

"He is a very talented attacker and I am delighted he has signed his first professional deal", academy director Ose Aibangee told the club's website.
