Brentford have signed Portugal under-21 striker Alberto Coelho from Sporting Lisbon on a season-long loan.

The 21-year-old, known as Betinho, was spotted by Bees boss Mark Warburton when he was running the NextGen Series.

"Betinho is a very talented striker that first came to prominence in the NextGen Series for Sporting Lisbon," Warburton told the club website.

"He is quick, strong and technically gifted and he shone in very good team that included Joao Teixeira, who is known to Brentford fans.

"Betinho had a spell out on loan last season and we have moved to bring him to Brentford.

"We are looking forward to him making a positive contribution in the season ahead."
