Brentford sign Dasilva on two-year deal

Brentford: Griffin Park

Brentford have signed Cole Dasilva on a free transfer.

The 19-year-old full-back, who was recently released by Chelsea, has signed a two-year contract at Griffin Park.

He will initially play for Brentford’s B team, whose head coach Kevin O’Connor told the club website: “Cole will bring quality on the ball alongside dynamic pace both in attack and defence, and we look forward to developing his obvious potential even further with the B team.”

Dasilva won the FA Youth Cup and Under-18 league title during his time at Chelsea.

Brentford are among a number of clubs to have expressed an interest in signing his elder brother Jay on loan from Chelsea this summer.
