Brentford sign winger Olakigbe from Fulham

Brentford have signed winger Michael Olakigbe from west London rivals Fulham for an undisclosed fee.

The 18-year-old will link up with the club’s B team at first and has signed a four-year deal with the Bees, along with the option of a further year.

He made 22 appearances in the Under-18 Premier League last season, scoring 11 goals and notching three assists for Fulham.

The former QPR youngster has also featured for England at Under-18 level.

B team boss Neil MacFarlane said: “I think Michael is a fantastic signing for the club. He is a winger who can eliminate players with his ability and he has really good pace.

“He is somebody who will bring goals and assists to the team. He is a really good character and he wants to get better and better so we can’t wait to get working with him at the training ground.”
