The odds of the West Yorkshire outfit securing the services of 26-year-old central defender Dean this summer are 9/2.
After all, the Owls have been linked with a move for the former Southampton man, with The Mirror (print edition, page 58, August 10, 2017) reporting of the Championship club’s interest in the defender (click here to read more).
Hull City, who got relegated from the Premier League at the end of last season, are second favourites to sign the former Dagenham & Redbridge man with odds of 4/1 in their favour, according to Ladbrokes.
Dean has been on the books of Brentford on a permanent basis since 2012 following a loan spell from Southampton and has improved steadily over the past few years.
The defender is actually a former teammate of Leeds United winger Stuart Dallas. The 26-year-old Northern Ireland international, who can also operate as an attacking midfielder, played for the Bees from 2012 until 2015 before making the switch to the Whites.
