Chelsea midfielder Josh McEachran is expected to join Brentford on a four-year contract.
The 22-year-old was tipped for stardom after making his Blues debut at 17 but has failed to live up to the hype.

Of his five loan spells away from Stamford Bridge, only his stint at Middlesbrough in 2012-13 could be deemed a success. He made just seven league starts for Dutch side Vitesse last term.
It seems that the Premier League champions are ready to give up on the England Under-21 international, with Sky Sports reporting that McEachran will complete a move to Brentford later today.
The Championship club’s new recruitment policy under manager Marinus Dijkhuizen relies heavily on statistics, but McEachran is still yet to score in his 95 professional outings.
McEachran has made 22 appearances for Chelsea in total, but only six since 2011.
