On Tuesday, Brentford made a significant signing by bringing in Nathan Collins, a defender from the Republic of Ireland. They acquired him from Wolves for a club record fee of £23 million ($29 million).
Collins has agreed to a six-year contract with the Premier League club, even though he has only been at Molineux for one season.
According to Bees boss Thomas Frank, the 22-year-old, who has previously played for Stoke and Burnley, will be the ideal player for Brentford.
He is a young centre-back with a lot of talent. Frank mentioned that he possesses numerous exceptional abilities that we highly appreciate.
His ability to head the ball is a significant asset, both during regular gameplay and from set-pieces. This skill is highly valued in the Premier League.
I think his character is really impressive. I’m confident that he will easily adapt to our culture.
I think Nathan has the potential to be a great leader. He is an ideal fit for Brentford, as he is both eager and ambitious, with a strong desire to learn.

Brentford is aiming to build upon their best-ever league finish as they concluded the 2022-23 season in ninth position.
I can tell that this club is growing and I understand their aspirations for the future. Collins expressed their excitement about being here.
Collins has joined Brentford following the recent signings of goalkeeper Mark Flekken from Freiburg and the permanent acquisition of Kevin Schade on loan from the Bundesliga side.
