Sam Saunders has signed a new deal, keeping him at Brentford until the summer of 2016.

The long serving midfielder has signed the new contract, extending his current stay at the Bees until next summer.

Sam has been at the Bees for almost 6 years now but his current deal was due to expire this summer.

Warbs said in his interview: “I am delighted to have Sam extend his time with the Club.’

He went on to say: “He offers so much for us on and off the pitch.’

Saunders joined in 2009 from Dagenham and Redbridge after he scored 14 goals in their 08/09 League Two campaign.

Sam who is now 31 was with Charlton as a youngster, before joining Dagenham when they won promotion to the Football League in 2007.

He then made the move to West London where he is the club’s second longest serving player after legend Kevin O’Connor.

He missed most of 2014 due to an injury but is raring to go again.

All in all he has played 170 games for the Bees, scoring 27 goals.

One of his most memorable goals can be seen below.
