Brentford have signed former Burnley captain Ben Mee on a free transfer after agreeing a two-year-deal with the defender.
The 32-year-old left Burnley when his contract expired following their relegation from the Premier League last season.
Brentford boss Thomas Frank said the centre-back would add “quality and experience” to his squad.
“I really love his defensive mindset,” he said. “He knows how to defend the box, he knows how to block a shot and he knows how to win duels.
“He will bring leadership and communication to the team, which is very attractive.
“He has a very good left foot and will be very good for us on set-pieces in both boxes. I am looking forward to adding him to the squad.”
Mee, who played almost 400 times for Burnley over an 11-year period, is Brentford’s fourth signing of the transfer window, joining Aaron Hickey, Keane Lewis-Potter and Thomas Strakosha in west London.
Back in the top flight after a 74-year absence, Brentford finished 13th in the Premier League table last term.
