Yennaris’ move to China is confirmed

Brentford have confirmed they have sold Nico Yennaris to Chinese club Beijing Sinobo Guoan.

The 25-year-old began his career at Arsenal and moved to Brentford on loan in January 2014, joining them on a permanent deal the following summer.

Yennaris, who can play at right-back or in midfield, scored 12 goals in 144 league appearances for the Bees.

“We are pleased for him that he can make such a move and wish him all the best for his future career,” said Brentford head coach Thomas Frank.
