Logan heads Bees departures

Brentford have confirmed that Shaleum Logan is one of four players set to leave the club.

Logan joined the Bees after leaving Manchester City in the summer of 2011 and in total he played 103 games for the club, scoring five goals.

The versatile 26-year-old spent the second half of this season on loan at Scottish Premiership side Aberdeen and will now join the Dons on a permanent deal when his Brentford contract expires next month.

"I am delighted that the loan move worked out for Shaleum," Bees boss Mark Warburton told the club's official website.

"The loan move was designed to give him playing time and it worked out well for all parties.

"Shaleum gave trememdous service to the club in his time here. All the staff and players wish him well at Aberdeen and all the best for the future."

Scott Barron, Farid El Alagui and Liam O'Brien will also be leaving Griffin Park when their contracts expire.

Clayton Donaldson is also out of contract but the striker will be offered fresh terms by the newly-promoted Championship club.

Warburton said: "We will be offering Clayton a contract.

"When we first spoke to him about a new contract earlier in the season he said he wanted to play in the Championship and ideally that would be with Brentford.

"I have spoken to him and conversations have been positive. I hope we can wrap up Clayton's future quickly."

Meanwhile, Josh Clarke, who was promoted to the first-team ranks last month, has been offered a new one-year deal.
