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."

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

I

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
