Brentford snap up youngster Hutton

Brentford have signed teenage midfielder Louis Hutton.

The 19-year-old, released by Manchester City, came to the attention of Bees boss Mark Warburton when he impressed in the NextGen series.

City paid £800,000 to Leeds United after capturing Hutton, then only 14, from the Yorkshire club in 2009.

Hutton, an England Under-17 international, has signed an 18-month contract at Griffin Park and will initially play for the Bees’ development side.
