23 year old Brentford CB or RB, maybe putting out feelers in case Khumlol gets recalled? Anyone seen him play?

Yes, I have seen him play. Good young player, composed, willing to put his body on the line - reminds me a bit of a young Sonko but better, but can't get near their first team atm. Would rather have Leon Legge FWIW

He's "Injured" You can have Leon Legge if you give us Tabby back :D

Is this the same Hungerford Bee as on the GPG? Also, FWIW, I'd swap Tabb for Legge anyday. Legge played crucial roles in both the Bournemouth and MK Dons games, whereas Tabb has been largely ineffectual for us.

Yep the very same.

The reason I would swap Legge for Tabby would be that we have cover for Leon but we need somebody creative going forward in midfield which is what Tabby used to do before you broke him!

Creative? Tabb? Are we speaking about the same player? Although, he does offer more going forward than Douglas, Diagoraga and Bean combined and that's saying something.

Just asked a journalist friend of mine covers The Bees (for radio). He said that BFC have given Osborne permission to speak to clubs about a move.

He'd not heard anything specific about interest from RFC.

It was reported on Talksport yesterday, so probably not a reliable source.

Sky Sports sources understand Reading are set to seal a deal for Brentford defender Karleigh Osborne.

The centre-back will be out of contract at Griffin Park at the end of the season and is consequently set to make a January move to the Madejski Stadium.

Brentford boss Uwe Rosler last week claimed Osborne had been offered a new contract and a 30 per cent pay rise, but the 23-year-old wants to play in the Championship.

Reading can offer Osborne the second-tier football he aspires towards and Brian McDermott's side are also in contention for a place in this season's play-offs

Osborne was last summer a target of League One rivals Charlton, but they did not meet Brentford's valuation.
