"The fact he has joined our first team squad is testament to his work ethic, desire and determination."

He added: "Josh has had to work exceptionally hard to adapt to this level of football and to broaden his knowledge and understanding of the game."

Brentford claimed the second automatic promotion place behind League One champions Wolves last season.
