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.”
