Under-21 midfielder George Saville will join Brentford on loan until January 5.

The 20-year-old, who spent the back end of last season with Millwall in the Championship, will begin the next campaign in League One with our west London neighbours.

A tall, competitive left-footer who reads the game very well and is good in possession, Saville joined the Chelsea Academy from Reading at Under-13, and has been part of our successful FA Youth Cup campaign in 2010 and our national reserve league victory a year later.

The youngster made 17 appearances for the second string during 2011/12, with a further 15 appearances in the reorganised Under-21 format last season.
