Brentford withdraw Maupay from friendly amid Brighton, Sheffield Utd interest

Brentford are keeping Neal Maupay from playing in preseason.

Sky Sports says Maupay will not play in their friendly against Dynamo Kiev due to the ongoing uncertainty over his future.

The Bees have withdrawn the 22-year-old from the squad and given him permission to return to France for three days because he has not been in the right frame of mind to play.

Aston Villa, Brighton, Sheffield United and West Ham have all expressed interest in the Frenchman.

Maupay is expected to return to training at the Bees' Jersey Road training ground on Tuesday.

Brentford are understood to want in the region of £20m for him.
