Goalkeeper extends stay at Griffin Park until the summer of 2017

Brentford goalkeeper David Button has signed a new three-year contract.
The 25-year-old arrived at Griffin Park last summer, joining The Bees from Charlton Athletic for an undisclosed fee.
His contract was due to expire at the end of the 2014/15 season but he has now signed a new deal to keep him at Griffin Park until the summer of 2017.
David played 45 games in all competitions for Brentford in 2013/14.
He was between the sticks for 42 of The Bees’ Sky Bet League One fixtures and conceded just 37 goals as Brentford won promotion.
David also kept 19 clean sheets during the League One campaign.
Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “David had a very successful season last year.
“He became the first choice number one goalkeeper for the first time in his career and he delivered a series of excellent displays.
“With the way we want to play the game, his distribution abilities are of paramount importance to us.
“I am delighted that he has extended his contract.
“David still has a period of development ahead of him and he will play a key role in the season ahead.”
David started out at Tottenham Hotspur and came through the youth ranks at White Hart Lane.
After loan spells at clubs including AFC Bournemouth, Shrewsbury Town, Crewe Alexandra, Barnsley and Doncaster Rovers David joined Charlton from Tottenham in the summer of 2012.
He started six games for the South London side in 2012/13, five of them in The Championship, before making the move to TW8.
