Bees fans on Twitter react as Birmingham agree fee for Dean

Brentford fans on Twitter have given a mixed reaction to the news that former captain Harlee Dean is nearing a move to Birmingham.

The two clubs have agreed a fee of around £2m and the 26-year-old is due to have a medical on Tuesday.

Some Bees supporters praised Dean for his contribution since joining from Southampton in 2012, but others felt he was easily replaceable.

Birmingham fans largely were pleased with the news, after their attempts to sign Bristol City centre-back Aden Flint were rebuffed.
