Brentford eye Walsall left-back Henry

Dean Smith

Brentford want Walsall’s highly-rated teenage left-back Rico Henry.

The 19-year-old has been watched by a number of Championship clubs and could be set for a pre-deadline move.

Brentford, who recently signed left-back Callum Elder on loan from Leicester, could look to send Tom Field out on loan if a deal can be agreed for Henry.

Henry played under Bees boss Dean Smith at Walsall and is a former team-mate of Romaine Sawyers, who left the Saddlers to move to Griffin Park earlier this summer.
