Clayton Donaldson: Brentford to offer striker new contract

Clayton Donaldson

Brentford manager Mark Warburton has confirmed he will offer a new deal to striker Clayton Donaldson.

The 30-year-old was the west London club's top scorer in 2013-14, scoring 18 goals in 48 appearances.

"When we first spoke to him about a new contract earlier in the season he said he wanted to play in the Championship and ideally that would be with Brentford," Warburton said.

"I have spoken to him and conversations have been positive."

Warburton added: "I hope we can wrap up Clayton's future quickly."

Meanwhile, the Bees have announced four players are leaving Griffin Park after their contracts expired.

Goalkeeper Liam O'Brien, full-backs Scott Barron and Shaleum Logan, along with striker Farid El Alagui are all departing.

Logan, 26, has already agreed a deal with Aberdeen, having spent the second half of last season on loan with the Scottish side.
