Former Brentford midfielder Marcus Bean has signed for Colchester United after being released by Uwe Rosler earlier in the summer.

The 27 year old combatative midfielder, who spent four seasons with The Bees, has signed a three year deal with the League One side.

Sam Wood, meanwhile, is said to be attracting interest from League Two AFC Wimbledon – where he could replace former Bees youngster Chris Bush at left back.

Brentford have been linked with Leeds United striker Billy Paynter by the Hounslow Chronicle whilst Charlton forward Paul Hayes has been tipped for a move to Griffin Park on twitter.
