National League side Sutton United have signed Brentford striker Herson Alves on a youth loan deal until 22 December.

The 19-year-old has scored seven goals in 15 appearances for the Championship club's B team this season.

Alves, who has previously spent time in the youth set-up of Portuguese Primeira Liga side Benfica, is eligible to play in the FA Cup for the U's.

Sutton face League Two side Cheltenham Town in a home second-round tie on Saturday.

Alves joined the Bees in 2012 and had a spell on loan with Hampton & Richmond in National League South last year.
