Uwe Rosler reinforced his squad for next season today by signing youngsters Harlee Dean and Adam Forshaw on permanent deals.

Midfielder Forshaw – named Everton reserves player of the season last term – played seven games on loan for Brentford last year before a facial injury ended his season early.

Centre back Dean made more of an impact in TW8 playing 28 times during his loan spell from Southampon and putting in some sterling displays at the heart of defence.

Both player’s contracts expired this summer and they have been released by their Premier League parent clubs, agreeing two year deals with The Bees.

Rosler commented “We have a policy of getting players in on loan that we would like to sign permanently. The signing of both Harlee and Adam shows that policy in action.”

Uwe’s first signing of the summer was Irish winger Stuart Dallas from Crusaders.
