Brentford boss Dean Smith has a warning for the likes of Wednesday and Rangers

Brentford Griffin Park

Sheffield Wednesday, Rangers and Burnley are among those interested in signing Brentford’s key players.

Brentford boss Dean Smith says any club wishing to buy his side’s star players must meet their transfer value following a succession of rejected bids, the Mirror report.

The Bees have enjoyed great success over the past 18 months, finishing in the Championship’s playoffs last season while finding and later developing a number of excellent players.

The club’s success has subsequently caught the attentions of a number of rivals tracking their players, yet Brentford boss Dean Smith warns that potential suitors must pay the going rate.

“It seems like it’s the January sales with the bids we’ve had in. There’s no discount on our players so if people want to buy them then meet their value,” he explained.

“It’s not the January sales, it’s the January transfer window.”

Among those tracking Brentford’s players are Sheffield Wednesday, Rangers and Burnley.

The Owls have already seen a bid for playmaker Alan Judge rejected, as reported by Sky Sports, though that will not have stopped Wednesday from keeping tabs on the situation.

The Hillsborough side are in the mix for a top six spot this season and will see the talented Judge as an ideal acquisition to their forward line.

Rangers, under the guidance of former Brentford boss Mark Warburton, are another who are looking towards Griffin Park as a place to bolster their ranks this January.

The Gers have their eye on Toumani Diagouraga, and the player himself recently told the Scottish Sun of his interest at moving north of the bolder to reunite with Warburton at Ibrox.

The BBC, however, reported that Rangers had a bid rejected last week.
