Brentford have completed a deal to sign Bologna’s Scottish full-back Aaron Hickey in an initial £14m transfer.
The Scotland U21 full-back has signed a long-term contract with the west London club and the deal represents the first piece of transfer business for Thomas Frank this summer.
The £14m fee will rise to £18m if performance-related add-ons are met during Hickey’s time at Brentford, who are preparing for their second successive season of top-flight football.

Brentford manager Frank revealed this week he is “optimistic” over Christian Eriksen’s chances of committing to the club, despite the Danish midfielder’s agreement with Manchester United.
