Brentford complete signing of keeper Flekken

Brentford have completed the signing of Netherlands international goalkeeper Mark Flekken from German club Freiburg.

Flekken, 29, to move to west London for around £11m and has signed a four-year contract.

He was lined up to replace David Raya, who is expected to leave this summer.

Raya has a year remaining on his contract and has rejected offers of a new deal.

Bees boss Thomas Frank said recently that the club were “prepared” for Raya’s possible exit.

Flekken kept 13 clean sheets in 34 matches for Freiburg this season – the most in the Bundesliga.

Frank said: “He’s a player with a lot of quality. He’s a very good shot-stopper and comfortable with the ball at his feet. His distribution is very impressive.”
