Brentford pair extend Wycombe stay

5 May 2015

Sam Saunders and Nico Yennaris to stay in Buckinghamshire for Play-Offs

Brentford pair Sam Saunders and Nico Yennaris have extended their loans at Wycombe Wanderers for the duration of the Sky Bet League Two Play-Offs.

The pair have been with the Buckinghamshire side since the end of February.

Wycombe finished fourth in League Two and will play Plymouth Argyle in the Play-Off Semi-Final.

The first leg will be in Devon on Saturday, May 14.

It has been agreed that Sam and Nico will stay with Wycombe for their Play-Off campaign but there is a recall clause allowing Brentford to bring them back to Griffin Park with 24 hours’ notice.

Sam has played 11 games for Wycombe and scored two goals but has been injured in recent weeks, Nico has made 14 appearances and scored his first professional goal in Wanderers’ 3-2 win over Northampton Town on Saturday, May 2.

Mark Warburton, Brentford FC Manager, said: “Sam and Nico have proved their worth and their quality during a highly productive loan spell at Wycombe and most crucially, have gained valuable pitch time to prepare them for as/when needed.

“We have a 24 hour recall on both players and I would have no concern or hesitation in using Sam or Nico if required.

Sam, 31, has played five First Team matches this season – all as substitute – since his recovery from a long term knee injury last November.

He signed an extension to his contract that keeps him at Brentford until at least June 2016.

Nico, 21, has made three appearances so far this season, his last in the 3-0 defeat at Charlton Athletic in February.

The Leytonstone-born defender signed from Premier League side Arsenal in 2014 for an undisclosed fee on a two and a half year deal.

The pair will join Development Squad defender Alfie Mawson at Adams Park - who has been on loan to Wycombe since last August - plus former Brentford players Sam Wood, Marcus Bean, Aaron Pierre, and Paul Hayes as the Buckinghamshire side push for promotion.
