Brentford youngster Forrester calm over West Brom interest

Brentford midfielder Harry Forrester is staying calm over interest from West Bromwich Albion.

Against Chelsea, Brentford's players were able to boost their own reputations, not least Forrester, who was reportedly watched by West Brom sporting director Dan Ashworth last week.

Forrester - released by Aston Villa in 2011 - insisted he knew nothing of the visit but admitted he was still dreaming of playing in the Premier League.

"You've got to believe," he said. "Obviously, it's everyone's dream to play in the Premier League and I've come down the leagues to learn my trade, and I'm doing that.

"I've got a great manager behind me, great colleagues and a great club.

"I'm at a hungry club that wants success and I'm not somewhere where mediocre is accepted.

"So it's bringing me on as a player and I'm really grateful for that."
