Skysports.com understands Harry Forrester is to snub Ajax in favour of penning a deal with Brentford.

The promising midfielder is currently available as a free agent after leaving Aston Villa earlier in the summer.

Having found himself without a contract, the 20-year-old travelled to Holland to take in a three-week trial with Ajax.

The Eredivisie giants were impressed by what Forrester has to offer and were keen to bring him on board.

Terms

Terms have been put to the youngster, but the paperwork is yet to be completed.

It is understood that Forrester would prefer to remain in England, and he has a number of clubs interested in snapping him up.

League One outfit Brentford are among those chasing his signature, having taken the opportunity to run an eye over him prior to his spell with Ajax.

It appears as though the Bees are set to win the race for Forrester and they will be keen to get a deal done as soon as possible, with the 2011/12 campaign set to get underway this weekend.
