Bees end talks over Coventry’s Stevenson

Brentford are discussing new midfield targets after ending talks with Coventry over a potential deal to sign Ben Stevenson from the League One club.

The Bees had a second offer, of £1.5m, rejected by the Sky Blues last week.

The two clubs are far apart in their valuation, with Coventry wanting £2.5m for the 19-year-old.

Brentford are not currently planning to submit a third offer.
