  • Last season’s top scorer, Clayton Donaldson, has left for Birmingham. However, the Bees have brought in Moses Odubajo from Leyton Orient for a fee of £1million. This is a new club record which beat the £750,000 they played for Hermann Hreiöarsson. They have also brought in last season’s Conference top scorer Andre Gray from Luton for £600,000 and if he can step up to Championship level, he will be a great signing.
