The 20-year-old, who can play in defence and midfield, has agreed a two-and-a-half year contract and could make his debut against Bristol City at Griffin Park on Tuesday night.

Yennaris made four appearances for the Gunners, including one as a half-time substitute against Manchester United in the Premier League in 2012.

Bees boss Mark Warburton told the club website: "Nico is a player we have watched for many years as he has come through the Academy at Arsenal.

"He is a very talented player, technically good and physically sound. He has a real tactical astuteness for a young player.

"Nico has shown great flexibility in terms of positioning, appearing for Arsenal at right-back, left-back and in midfield.

"Nico is in the same age category as George Saville, Jake Bidwell and Marcello Trotta.

"He is a talented young player and I am sure he will have a bright future at Brentford Football Club. We are delighted to secure him permanently."

lassic management. Build them up and then knock them back. Raise expectations and then dampen them. Create a dynamic where by you demand the most from your team, but where the team are given room to manoeuvre unexpected or unwanted results. Classy work by Van Gaal, he really reminds me a lot of me. A smart cookie, make no doubt.
