Brentford midfielder Dru Yearwood is closing in on a summer move to MLS side New York Red Bulls.

Yearwood joined Brentford from Southend last summer but the midfielder has managed only five appearances for Thomas Frank’s side this season.

Now he is set to join the growing list of English youngsters heading abroad to further their development.
In New York he will join fellow English-born youngster Mandela Egbo.
The midfielder’s move is still subject to a medical and paperwork being completed but it’s understood an initial deal was struck earlier this year, only for coronavirus to put it under threat.
Talks were recently resurrected and the Red Bulls are close to securing the services of a player they have been tracking for months.
The MLS summer transfer window will open on August 12.
