Brentford have signed Spanish international goalkeeper Alvaro Fernandez on loan from La Liga side Huesca.

Fernandez joins the Premier League club on a one-year loan deal, with an option to make the move permanent at the end of the 2021-22 season.

The 23-year-old made his senior debut for Spain earlier this summer and was part of the squad that won silver at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.

"Alvaro is a player with huge potential, and we are very pleased that he has come in to our squad and our goalkeeper unit," said Brentford head coach Thomas Frank.

"He will come here and compete every day with David Raya and Patrik Gunnarsson. This is a signing that make us stronger as a group and will help push us to a higher level."
