Colin joins Bees exodus to Birmingham

Full-back Maxime Colin has become the third Brentford player to move to Birmingham City in the space of 24 hours.

The Frenchman has completed his switch to St. Andrew’s and links up with former Bees skipper Harlee Dean, who signed for Blues on Wednesday, and winger Jota who also moved on transfer deadline day.

Colin joined Brentford from Belgian side Anderlecht in the summer of 2015 and made 21 league appearances during an injury-hit first season in west London.

Last season, the 25-year-old played 40 times, scoring four goals.

Also on transfer deadline day, midfielder Jan Holldack and defender Emmanuel Onariase left Brentford on permanent deals.
