Brentford have clinched the season-long loan signing of Jake Bidwell from Everton.
The club have also captured Norwich City midfielder Tom Adeyemi, 20, who has joined them until January.
Bidwell, 19, returns to Griffin Park, where he caught the eye with some impressive performances while on loan last season.
The Bees spent much of the summer trying to negotiate his return but were told the left-back would not be available.
But their persistence has paid off, with Everton finally agreeing to release him.
His arrival is a massive boost for manager Uwe Rosler, who is expected to select him for Saturday’s game against Walsall.
Bidwell, who can also operate on the left of midfield, made 25 appearances for Brentford last season.
