Ellery Balcombe TEAMtalk

In-form Championship side Brentford have agreed a new contract with highly-rated goalkeeper Ellery Balcombe.

We understand the England youth international has committed his future to the west London club before heading out on loan.

The 21-year-old has a number of teams in League One and Two chasing his signature.

Sources believe that Yorkshire outfit Doncaster are the favourites to capture his signature.

Meanwhile, Brentford will play their first ever domestic semi-final when they face Tottenham in the last four of the Carabao Cup on Tuesday evening.

The Bees have beaten four Premier League clubs to reach this stage and boss Thomas Frank insists his men are not overawed by the challenge posed.

“I have studied football for many years and Jose [Mourinho] is one of the greatest of all time. So it’s a privilege to play against his team,” he said.

“I admire him a lot for having that fantastic career. But when the whistle blows it’s just another bloke standing in the dug-out. I’m still pretty sure he also goes to the toilet sometimes!”
