Farid El Alagui's loan from Brentford to Scottish Premiership Dundee United ends

Brentford striker Farid El Alagui has reached the end of his loan spell with Scottish Premiership Dundee United.

The 29-year-old Moroccan striker has been with the Scottish side since early January.

Dundee United played their final game of the 2013/14 season on Saturday, May 17.

Their last game was the Scottish FA Cup Final, which they lost 2-0 to St Johnstone.

Farid played 15 games for Dundee United in all competitions, scoring three goals.

He helped them finish fourth in the Scottish Premiership.

Farid joined Brentford from Falkirk in the summer of 2012 and made his Brentford debut against Bury on the first day of the 2012/13 League One season.

He made an immediate impact at Griffin Park, scoring three goals in his first five games for The Bees, but picked up a serious knee injury in October 2012 that caused him to miss most of the 2012/13 season.

He returned at the start of the 2013/14 season and marked his comeback with two goals in a Capital One Cup win over Dagenham and Redbridge.

He was mainly used as a substitute this season, playing 18 games in all competitions but only starting three, 12 of those appearances came in Sky Bet League One with one from the start.

He scored six goals for The Bees this term, one in the league, and has a total of nine goals from 30 Brentford games in all competitions, 20 of which were as a substitute.

Four of those goals came in his 23 League One games.
