Josh Laurent, Nesta Guinness-Walker

Wimbledon’s Nesta Guinness-Walker is attracting interest from a host of Championship clubs, TEAMtalk can reveal.

The 20-year-old left-sided defender joined the Dons from non-league Met Police last summer. He has been outstanding ever since, having made 27 appearances last season.

Now Guinness-Walker – the great grandson of Sir Alex Guinness – could be on the move again with interest mounting.

We understand that the former Chelsea and Tottenham trainee is very high on Brentford’s list of targets to replace Rico Henry. Henry could be set to leave the club before the window shuts for the Premier League. We understand Guinness-Walker is top of their list of potential replacements.

Queens Park Rangers, Middlesbrough and Huddersfield have also been keeping tabs on him.


Bees, Norwich chase Alex Pritchard

Alex Pritchard is being chased by former employers Norwich and Brentford, TEAMtalk understands.

The attacking midfielder is currently with Huddersfield, but has never really been able to shine in West Yorkshire.

But both Norwich and Brentford are both well aware what the 27-year-old is capable of.

Huddersfield’s new boss Carlos Corberan is keen to keep hold of him, but knows the club could not resist a good offer for the player.

Pritchard himself is likely to jump at the chance to return to either club, given both are amongst the favourites for promotion.

The player is likely to command a fee of around £6million.
