Brentford boss Frank warns Aston Villa, Chelsea off Benrahma, Watkins

Brentford manager Thomas Frank insists there's no plans of selling their best players.

The Daily Mail says winger Said Benrahma has attracted interest this season following impressive performances. As well as reported attention from Aston Villa, Chelsea have also scouted the Algerian international.

While Crystal Palace have been long-term admirers of Ollie Watkins but Frank is adamant that the pair will not depart Brentford next month.

"Frankly, no player will leave Brentford yet," Frank said.

"They all feel good at this club, and we play attractive football and Benrahma, [Bryan] Mbeumo and [Ollie] Watkins have fun with us, they have fun playing football and their lives are here in Brentford.

"I'm sure we'll see a better performing Said Benrahma, I had a chat with him and he wants to give everything to improve his performance and his statistics during the second half of the season."
