A number of Championship clubs are tracking Brenford defender Harlee Dean, Sky Sports understands.
Dean enjoyed an outstanding season for Brentford last term and was instrumental in them reaching the League One play-off final, scoring in the 2-1 defeat to Yeovil.
The former Southampton youngster has established himself as one of the best defenders outside the top two divisions since arriving at Griffin Park on a free transfer in May 2012.
The 21-year-old's progress has not gone unnoticed with several Championship sides keeping tabs on him last term.
Dean is entering the final year of his contract at Brentford and the club are bracing themselves for bids for the highly-rated defender this summer.
