Brentford have completed the signing of Ben Krauhaus on a three and a half year contract, with a 12-month club option, from Vanarama National League side Bromley for an undisclosed fee.
Krauhaus will be loaned back to Bromley for the remainder of this current campaign and will join the young Bees ahead of the 2024/25 season.
The 19-year-old midfielder has featured regularly for Bromley's first team, featuring in all but one of their 28 league games this season, scoring five goals in the process.
Krauhaus has helped Andy Woodman's side to second in the National League, as the Lillywhites push for promotion into League Two.
B-team head coach Neil MacFarlane said: "I am absolutely delighted with his signing. Ben is someone who has performed so well for Bromley so far and we cannot wait for him to join us in the summer.
"Ben really suits our style of play; he is really aggressive in his pressing while also being a player who can create and score goals.
"We want to continue that development process for him and I am sure he will fit perfectly into the group."
