Brentford defender Charlie Goode has completed a loan move to Wigan Athletic, which will keep him at the League One side until the end of the season.

The centre-back joined the Bees from Northampton Town after their promotion to League One in 2019/20 and has since made 20 appearances for the west Londoners, including six in the Premier League.

He has been included in Thomas Frank’s first-team squad five times in the top tier this term, but was an unused substitute on all of those occasions.

After beginning his senior career in non-league, Goode joined League One club Scunthorpe United on a free transfer in 2015 but, after struggling to fully establish himself during four seasons at Glanford Park, he joined League Two club Northampton Town.

The centre-back was named captain after his loan move was made permanent ahead of the 2019/20 campaign, before he went on to make 45 appearances and score four goals during a year which culminated in promotion to League One after victory in the play-off final.

That season, he was voted the club's 2019/20 Supporters' Player of the Year and was named in the League Two PFA Team of the Year.

Goode signed for then-Championship club Brentford the following term and was an unused substitute during the Bees’ 2-0 play-off final victory over Swansea City, winning promotion in his first season in west London.

After gaining Premier League minutes for the Bees, the defender made a loan move to Championship club Sheffield United in January 2022, but injuries saw him make just two appearances at Bramall Lane.

That injury saw Goode miss the club’s 2022/23 pre-season, but he returned to the matchday squad on Boxing Day and was an unused substitute during a 2-2 draw with Tottenham Hotspur.

A move to second-tier side Blackpool on loan until the end of the 2022/23 campaign followed, before a hamstring injury on his third appearance ended his season.

After gaining valuable minutes for the B team in recent behind-closed-doors matches, Goode will now join Wigan until the end of the season. Shaun Maloney’s side currently sit 13th in the third tier.
