David Raya will be playing Premier League football next season after Brentford secured promotion via the play-offs.

As a result Rovers will pocket the promotion clause in the deal that took the Spaniard to the Bees in 2019.

Raya left Rovers for an initial £3m, rising to £5m, while there is also a sell-on clause in that deal, with the ‘keeper having been linked with Arsenal for much of the last year.

Brentford put last season’s play-off heartbreak behind them as they secured victory, and a place in the Premier League for the first time, with a 2-0 victory over Swansea City.

Ivan Toney put them ahead from the penalty spot before Emiliano Marcondes doubled the advantage, Swansea’s hopes of a comeback all but over midway through the second half when Jay Fulton was sent off.

Speaking after the match, the 25-year-old said: “I have Rovers to thank for making me the man and player I am today.”

Raya has now kept 34 clean sheets in 97 games for Brentford and has been a virtual ever present under boss Thomas Frank.

The Bees boss said he will start plotting life in the Premier League once the celebrations had died down, Brentford having finally overcome the play-off system after 10 failed attempts.

The Dane said: “Of course, just after the final whistle I was very emotional. I had tears in my eyes and so did the staff and the players.

“Especially because the way you do it. If you get promoted, you get promoted but to get so close last year, we were so devastated.

“Then it was 10 days holiday and back into it. We had more waves of Covid, a condensed season, then 21 games unbeaten to go top of the league, then a setback and in the play-offs again, and anything can happen in the final.

“But I just sensed this week they were calm, relaxed and ready to be ruthless. It’s up to us to continue that journey next year.”

The League One play-off final this afternoon will see the 2021/22 Championship line-up completed, as Lincoln City face Blackpool.

Sheffield United, West Bromwich Albion and Fulham were relegated from the Premier League, with Hull City and Peterborough United promoted automatically from League One.
