Watford loanee Lee Hodson has revealed that he jumped at the chance to move to Brentford on a short-term basis.

The defender will be with the Bees until January and he is excited to follow in the footsteps of the likes of Dale Bennett and Adam Thompson.

“Mark Warburton gave me a call last week and said that he was very interested in bringing me to Brentford,” said Hodson.

“At the moment I’m not involved at Watford and I want to go out and play football. Mark was telling me about Brentford and he sold it to me straight away.

“The position that the club is in the league; the fact that they are on a good run and the ambition that they have got all inspired me to come here and to try to do my best and to try to help the club.

“There have been a few Watford lads here recently and they have all given me great reports about the club and that has spurred me on to come here even more.”
