Former Burnley captain Ben Mee has completed a move to Premier League side Brentford on a two-year deal.

Mee spent 11 years at Turf Moor since joining from Manchester City in the summer of 2011, initially on a loan deal.

The 32-year-old played key roles in the Clarets’ promotions from the Championship in 2014 and 2016, as well as featuring in the Europa League qualifying rounds.

He also became part of the coaching set-up to assist interim boss Mike Jackson following Sean Dyche’s departure during the final stages of last season.

Mee was one of several players to leave the club at the end of his contract following relegation from the top-flight.

“I am very happy that we have signed Ben,” said manager Thomas Frank. “He will add a lot of quality and experience to the squad.

“He had six good years for Burnley in the Premier League. I really love his defensive mindset - he knows how to defend the box, he knows how to block a shot and he knows how to win duels.

“He will bring leadership and communication to the team, which is very attractive. He has a very good left foot and will be very good for us on set-pieces in both boxes.

"I am looking forward to adding him to the squad.”

The Bees finished 13th in their first season in the Premier League, comfortably beating the drop.

Meanwhile, Burnley have been linked with a move for Metz and Mali defender Boubacar Kouyate.

Vincent Kompany has already bolstered his defensive options with the additions of Taylor Harwood-Bellis, Luke McNally and CJ Egan-Riley ahead of the upcoming campaign.
