LEANDRO BOOST FOR THE BEES
BRENTFORD boss Dean Smith believes the loan signing of striker Leandro Rodriquez from Everton could transform the mood at the London club.
The Bees have signed the striker on an initial onemonth loan deal, hopeful the 23-year-old will help catapult them up the table.
And Smith is delighted to add a fresh face to his squad, having seen trio Jota, Toumani Diagouraga and James Tarkowski all leave the club in January without being replaced.
“It’s very nice to finally bring someone in,” he said.
“I think we needed a new face around the place and we’re thankful that Everton allowed him to come here.”
