Sky Bet Championship key transfer: Andre Gray to Brentford

2 July 2014

Andre Gray secured a three-year contract with Sky Bet Championship club Brentford after a productive 2013/14 campaign at Luton Town.

The 23-year-old netted 30 goals in the Conference Premier last season, including three hat-tricks, picking up the division's top scorer award and lifting Luton back into The Football League.=

After signing on loan at Kenilworth Road from Hinckley United in March 2012 before making the deal permanent the following summer, the Wolverhampton-born frontman scored 52 goals in 97 league games for the Hatters.

Gray - making a jump of three divisions - has never started a Football League match, coming close when making five substitute appearances for Shrewsbury Town in the 2009/10 campaign.

Brentford, who themselves enjoyed a promotion-winning campaign, will be looking at Gray to plug the gap left by Clayton Donaldson's departure to Birmingham City.

After confirming the signing, Bees boss Mark Warbuton told "Andre is a player we have tracked and who has just completed an outstanding season in helping Luton achieve promotion.

"He has tremendous pace, good movement and a clear eye for goal. We have no doubts he will make a very positive impact at Championship level."

Gray will join Moses Odubajo and Marcos Tebar Ramiro at Griffin Park, who both signed deals in the same week. Meanwhile, Alan Judge has also penned a three-year deal with Brentford, following a successful loan spell last term.
