Brentford are chasing a move for Bolton defender Harry Brockbank, who could be available on a free transfer.

The Trotters youngster broke into the first-team last season, and was a rare bright spark in an otherwise horrendous season for the club that eventually resulted in them being relegated to League One.

Due to the financial turmoil at Bolton that resulted in them being placed into administration, it has been suggested that Brockbank could be on the move.

Brentford are keen to strike a deal for the youngster, but could face competition from Ipswich Town and Sunderland, who are also said to be in the hunt.

Bolton hope to have their future sorted this week as six parties bid to takeover the club, so the Bees could have to move quickly to wrap up a deal.
