Dutch winger Florian Jozefzoon is the latest player to extend his stay at Brentford after the club activated an option in his contract to keep him at Griffin Park until next summer.
A former member of the Ajax academy, the pacey attacker joined the Championship club on a short-term deal in January.
Following his arrival from PSV Eindhoven, the former Netherlands U21 international went on to make 19 appearances for Brentford as he helped them to a tenth-placed finish in their recent league campaign.
Although he managed just one goal for Dean Smith's side, the 26-year-old impressed with his strong build-up play, setting up three goals.
Jozefzoon joins the growing list of players to have been granted contract extensions by Brentford, with the Championship club recently confirming that striker Jota would also remain in west London for another year.
The Spaniard, who joined the Bees from Celta Vigo in 2014, spent the first half of the 2016-2017 campaign on loan at Eibar before being recalled in December.
The 25-year-old excelled upon his return to England, finding the net 12 times in just 21 appearances and forming a dangerous partnership with Sergi Canos and Lasse Vibe, who finished the season as the club's top scorer with 15 league goals.
