Championship outfit Brentford have completed the signing of Jon Toral from Arsenal on a season-long loan deal.

The 19-year-old attacking midfielder heads to Brentford in search of regular first team football for the campaign and the Championship side are delighted to have secured Toral's services.

"Jon is a very talented attacking midfield player. He is strong and powerful", Brentford boss Mark Warburton told his club's site.

"Jon has come through a couple of nasty injuries, it is great to see him fully fit and he can now start to show his undoubted potential.


"We are thankful that Arsenal have given us this opportunity. Jon has come here to push hard for a place in the squad and the first XI."


Toral is a former member of Barcelona's youth academy and headed to join Arsenal in 2011 at the age of 16.

The 19-year-old has been handed the number 17 shirt by Brentford.
